Happy Thanksgiving

Many of you are likely spending this weekend resting and catching up with your personal life. Either that, or you’re scrambling to pull together a Thanksgiving weekend for a whole family - plus guests - plus unexpected guests.  

However your weekend is going, Thanksgiving is a time when we extend our hands and our tables. We reach out to neighbours and we count our blessings. This year, there is much to be thankful for. As I take a pause this weekend, I’m reminded of how thankful I am for the volunteers that have made the BIA as successful as it’s been. I’m thankful for the members who give their feedback, work hard to make Downtown a destination and know that we are continually making things better.

I’m thankful for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving,


Chris van der Vliet,
Chair of the Board
