Golden Welcome Wagon thanks Sobey’s for support

Sobey's received a plaque from the Welcome Wagon to thank them for 20 years of sponsorship.

Golden’s Welcome Wagon co-ordinator, Ellen Hatlevik, made a special presentation to Cam Dawes of Golden Sobey’s, to commemorate the store for being part of Welcome Wagon for 20 years.

“It’s such a nice community service for our new residents, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it,” said Dawes.

“I find that it’s a lot of fun, and it’s been great for my business as well,” said Hatlevik, who also sells Mary Kay. “It’s also a great way to promote shopping locally.”

Sobey’s is now the longest serving Golden business with the Welcome Wagon.

“It really adds something to the small town feel of Golden,” said Dawes.

Any business wanting to sponsor the Welcome Wagon can contact Hatlevik at ehatlevik@gmail.com.
