Queens County Heritage and Washademoak Region Chamber of Commerce Announce “Life At The Lakes” Sponsored Event on Aug7&8
Coined “The treasure hunt with a twist” by local artists & business owners
Cambridge-Narrows, New Brunswick – August7&8 2010 – The Village of Cambridge-Narrows, the Washademoak Region Chamber of Commerce & Queens County Heritage are pleased to announce the upcoming sponsored event “Life At The Lakes”.
“We believe this is an important step in helping to not only increase local awareness of artisans & businesses that are located within the river valley region, but to also aid in gaining realization from business owners that larger markets for their trades exist. With the distance that some businesses are located away from major highways, government recognition is not always possible. Hopefully this event will change that!” explains Tom Nisbet President of the Chamber of Commerce.
Queens County Heritage President, Bruce Thomson, notes that “it is a pleasure to work with a community that values culture, heritage, and the natural environment along with a strong entrepreneurial spirit.” Thomson gives full marks to the spirit of cooperation between the various organizers – business owners, artists, artisans, educators, historians and musicians. “This type of event cannot be done by one person,” he adds. “The sharing of talents, skills and resources in these challenging times is a personal highlight.” Life at the Lakes is supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage, Local Festivals Program and the Investors Group.
