The Elections are the biggest topic in town with only a few days left. Please make sure you VOTE.
Who will win and who will not, are questions far greater than we can predict but….. with the updated ruling by the Municipal Clerk, please note the Election of Officers for the BIA Board will take place at the AGM in March.
Under guidance of the Municipal Clerk a ruling has been brought to light on membership status. A BIA member is the property owner and the business tenant. (No sub-tenant – No Proxies)
Only a BIA member may vote or sit on the Board. All eligible members are asked to keep this in mind as we approach our AGM.

Scavenger Hunt November 22
The BIA is having a Scavenger Hunt within participating businesses to combat the often-used phrase “We can’t get it in Campbellford.” This will be an advertising promotion with minimal effort on the part of each merchant but should create maximum BUZZ in the Community…. and it works like this. If you wish to participate, think of the most unusual item you have for sale in your store.
For example Kerr’s Corner Books might list a giraffe, not a book because it is too easy to guess a book would be in a bookstore. On the Scavenger Hunt ballot there will be one list of business and one list of items across from each other with a number in front of them. The customer will fill in the space behind the business name with the item number.
|Kerr’s Corner Books||_______________||1 Canadian Bush Spray|
|Snap Shots||_______________||2 Giraffe|
|Bulk Plus||_______________||3 Refinished Antique Mirrors|
When the ballot is filled it needs to go to Kerr’s Corner Books. There will be a draw on 1 December for $100.00 in BIA Buck for the winner.
I will be bringing ballots around with the promotional material for Christmas before the Scavenger Hunt. So start thinking… What do I have in my store, that customers might not think I sell ?????
Santa Claus Parade – November 29
The theme for the Santa Clause Parade is Holiday Melodies.
We will be once again putting in a float. Would all participating businesses please have your wrapped empty box with your business name on the side delivered to me at Kerr’s Corner Books by 26 November. If any one has time to help put the float together on 29 November, please give me a call.
BIA Bucks Christmas Draws will take place 28 November and 5, 12, 19 December.
Have a great holiday season and if needed you can get in touch with me at… email@example.com
