NEXT BREAKFAST AT THE BEACH
The Networking Committee for the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the speaker for our next ‘Breakfast at the Beach’ on Thursday July 11th at 7:00am-8:30am will be Dave Brunelle, Project Director Southern Georgian Bay War of 1812 Bicentennial Committee. The breakfast will be held at Wasaga Sands Golf Club, 10 Club Court, Wasaga Beach.
2013 will not only mark the 11th year that Wasaga under Siege has been entertaining and promoting heritage in the Wasaga Beach area, but it also marks the 2nd year of the 1812 Bicentennial. Dave will be informing the business community of the Bicentennial events taking place over the August 16th-18th week-end and the impact that these events have on the business community. The TALL SHIPS will be returning to the shores of Nottawasaga Bay as part of Wasaga under Siege 2013; they will be sailing past Beach Area 1&2 on the Friday evening. Wasaga under Siege “A War of 1812 Experience” allows the local community the opportunity to come together and commemorate its rich local history and in turn creates long-lasting sustainable community bonds through the promotion and preservation of local history. Wasaga under Siege brings culture and heritage alive in the Town of Wasaga Beach and its surrounding communities and brings thousands of tourists to the area each year.
