Welcome to Our New Members
We’re very pleased to welcome two new Chamber Members: Nicole Teeter of Nicole Teeter Business Services and Justin Howe of the Kimberley General Store. Justin was elected as a Board Member at the recent AGM; his restaurant, Justin’s Oven, was winner of the Business of the Year award given that same night. Dane Nielsen is also a new Board Member. He is a former Chamber Vice President, and a current Municipal councillor and owner of the Grist Mill Winery in Eugenia.

Ron Gillespie of The Market Shoppe in Markdale has served on the Board for eight years and has stepped aside to enable new Members to take Board positions. We thank Ron for his commitment and support of Grey Highlands businesses over the years.
