Chamber gets timely advice

Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce meeting hears from local police

With the holidays, it was appropriate that businesses receive some reminders from the local police.

Ponoka RCMP Staff Sgt. Mike Numan was the guest speaker at the last Ponoka Chamber of Commerce meeting on Dec. 13, with the hope of getting to know the business community better and discuss some emerging trends.

Numan, along with Cpr. Jeff Sehn, focused on what the RCMP provides currently and about the increase in property crimes here and across Alberta.

“We encouraged them to do what they can to protect their property, watch out for their neighbours and report any crimes,” Numan said. “It was a very positive meeting.”

In addition, he spoke about how to deal with graffiti and how pride in appearance can help everyone overall as well as answered a variety of questions.

Chamber executive manager Kori Hart stated the address was well received and definitely a step forward in their relationship with the RCMP.

Among other business discussed was the winding up the Passport to Christmas promotion, something that went very well according to Hart, and the Children’s Christmas Shopping Party that also was well attended.

The next Chamber meeting will be their annual general meeting, scheduled for Jan. 17 at the Ponoka Youth Centre. All members are encouraged to attend.
