Annual Year in Review Meeting Set for December 20
Cornwall Ontario - It's December, which means it's time once again for the ever-popular Team Cornwall annual Year-in-Review meeting. For the 14th consecutive year, the highlight of the meeting will be a recap of the year's economic activity by Mark Boileau, Manager of Cornwall Economic Development.
Doors will be open at 7:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp on Thursday, December 20, 2012 at the Galaxy Cinemas on Second Street East.
"It is always important to pause and recognize the hard work of so many of our corporate citizens," said Mark Boileau. "The local economy had a number of highlights in 2012, with significant activity across industrial, commercial and residential sectors."
Mayor Bob Kilger is expected to welcome a number of out-of-town guests to the meeting.
"Cornwall's success is turning heads in boardrooms across Canada," said Mayor Kilger. "There are a number of people from other parts of Canada and the USA who will be visiting Cornwall and taking this opportunity to get a closer look at what is happening here."
Team Cornwall Achievements
Along with the presentation from Cornwall Economic Development, Team Cornwall will also be highlighting its members' efforts and accomplishments over the past year.
