2017 Year in Review - Peter Gault and Bob PetersCornwall Ontario – In what has become a Cornwall tradition, Team Cornwall will host the popular Year in Review meeting on Thursday December 14.

The meeting annually attracts well over 300 community leaders who are eager to hear a recap of the year's economic activity, compiled by the City's Economic Development Department. The meeting will be held at Galaxy Cinemas on Second Street. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp.

The Year in Review report summarizes major development activity that has occurred in Cornwall over the past 12 months.

“Positive economic activity has been evident across a number of sectors this year,” said Bob Peters, Division Manager of Economic Development with the City of Cornwall. "It is always interesting to highlight the various investments that have been made in the City and to acknowledge the accomplishments of both private and public sector organizations.”

The meeting is a particularly important one according to Team Cornwall Chair Peter Gault.

"Cornwall Economic Development does an excellent job in preparing the Year in Review presentation," said Mr. Gault. "It is exciting to recap the success of the past year so that we can all take that information and share it with people beyond the boundaries of Cornwall."

“Success breeds success, and we can all play a role in helping attract the next investor by speaking positively about our community,” added Mr. Gault.

Open to All

The meeting is open to all - regardless of Team Cornwall membership. A light breakfast will be served at 7:00 am, followed by the regular meeting. As always, the meeting is expected to attract a number of special guests from outside the region.

Local Artist and Vendor Bazaar

A bazaar featuring one-of-a-kind gift ideas from over a dozen local artists and vendors will once again greet attendees as they exit the theatre.  The popular bazaar is organized by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.
