The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce was recently informed it had won an award for Favourite eNewsletter from the publisher of Kootenay Business, Keith Powell.

“I am really flattered to know people out there voted for the Friday Notes. Every week we build the eNewsletter, hit the send button and it goes out to over 300 addresses. We are never too sure how many people read or value the information. This is a real compliment to know it is significant and was voted to receive an award,” said the manager of the chamber, Ruth Hamilton.

Hamilton added the chamber has been working hard to help promote business in the area.

“The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce website is the go-to place to find information about businesses in Golden. We strive hard to keep the web content fresh and up to date with information, pictures and business listings.  If you need to know what is happening in Golden, or want to post an event, check out the Community Calendar hosted on the KHCCC website,” she said. “The Friday Notes eNewsletter is the weekly electronic conduit to get all this top-line information out to the members and the community.”

One of the big events coming up is the Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show.

“We are very excited to tell everyone about the upcoming Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show we hosting on April 26 and 27. If you are a business you will want to showcase at the show,” Hamilton said. “For the best booth opportunities and early bird pricing, I recommend booking your booth soon, call the chamber today at 250-344-7125.”
