And here we are at the end of the last full week of August - countdown is on for school starting and events the first week of September are coming fast! If you caught the Amazing Race Canada this week, they did arrive in Belleville - we were hoping to see a glimpse of the action they filmed here at the Log Cabin but like any reality show, you only get to see what they want you to... maybe we'll be in a clip next Tuesday because we did have a few teams coming in for directions to their next stop.
Thanks to the couple people who read the last Chamber Chat carefully and asked for confirmation about the date for our Municipal Candidates' Forum on Wednesday, October 5 - being held at the Empire.
