The Quinte West Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its 2016 President’s Dinner and AGM on Thursday, March 31 at Occasions by the Bay in Bayside. This is a special night in Quinte West where the business community comes together to recognise the accomplishments of its Chamber, the success of its business community and to pay their respects to this year’s Honourary Life Time Membership recipient John Smylie.
“It is our honour this year to recognize businessman John Smylie with an Honourary Lifetime Membership,” says Quinte West Chamber president Cindy Dow. “Since coming to Quinte West 12 years ago he has made an indelible impact on our community through his leadership, his volunteerism and his ongoing support for community events and organizations, especially the Canadian Military and our local hospital.”
John Smylie has demonstrated tremendous commitment to the well-being of the community in which he lives and does business. John has become personally involved at the Executive level in such organizations as the Rotary Club of Trenton, Quinte West Chamber of Commerce (President), Trenton Military Family Resource Centre (Chair), the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation (Chair), St. George’s Church and the advocacy group, “our TMH”, the community voice for our local hospital.
