It’s that time of the year again.

In what has become a Cornwall tradition for the past 15 years, Team Cornwall will hold its popular Year in Review meeting on Wednesday December 17th.  The meeting annually attracts well over 300 attendees 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 in the largest theatre 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.

“It is an interesting exercise to review the investments and accomplishments that have taken place in Cornwall over the past 12 months,” said Mark Boileau, Manager of Cornwall Economic Development. “In our busy lives, it is easy to sometimes overlook new development that may be occurring right down the street. Many people really enjoy being able to see all of the major stories summarized in one presentation.”

The meeting always attracts a full house of community and business leaders, and Team Cornwall Chair Peter Gault is expected to welcome a number of out-of-town guests as well.

“Cornwall sits strategically within Central Canada between some of North America’s most influential urban centres,” said Mr. Gault. “Our success as a community is being noticed in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal boardrooms, and we have invited some key guests to join us on December 17.”

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.

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.

Team Cornwall Achievements

Along with the presentation from Cornwall Economic Development, Team Cornwall will also be highlighting its members’ efforts and accomplishments to promote Cornwall over the past year.
