Catching a dream at the Mingle

The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce brought people together for a mingle at Christmas.

The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Christmas Mingle at the Dreamcatcher Hostel.

“It’s really nice to see people before Christmas, and it’s all about networking and getting together,” said Ruth Hamilton, manager of the Chamber office.

Local members of the business community, as well as some guests at the hostel, gathered around the fire, the Christmas tree, and the food on Dec. 21.

“The Dreamcatcher Hostel provided the food and the location. It’s wonderful in here, it’s nice and cozy, and there’s visitors that we can talk to, and some people playing music. It’s what Golden is all about,” said Hamilton.

The Chamber is always trying to bring the community together, and Christmas was a great opportunity to do that.

“It’s important for people to make connections with other business owners. They get to know each other, and are able to recommend each other, and it just builds our sense of community,” said Hamilton.
