The Peachland Chamber of Commerce extends appreciation to all businesses and clubs and organizations that participated in the 21st annual Peachland Business Expo. Once again Dogwood Nursery created a welcoming display of garden furniture and flowering plants for the front entrance.
Nicholas Nixon drew a lot of attention as the Rubber Ducky Race mascot, encouraging spectators to support his racing friends on Saturday, Apr. 19 at Trepanier Creek, Todd Road and Beach Avenue. The Peachland Chamber of Commerce also extends appreciation to the RBC Foundation for choosing the Business Expo event to present a $10,000 cheque to Habitat for Humanity executive director Deborah Guthrie, and director Elaine Ophus at their Expo booth. These funds are directed towards the upcoming Peachland build.
Jamie Parks presented the winning ticket for the 50/50 draw and individual vendors will connect with winners of their product draws.

New eateries in town
Peachland eateries are featuring not only new menus, but also new owners. Big E’s is closed for renovation by new owners Jerry and Patti and will soon open their doors as Hangar “9” Bar & Grill. However, Peachland Liquor Store will remain under the management of Eric and Sue Menconi.
Rocky J’s is now operating as The Blue Rooster and if you haven’t stopped by, make it a must to check out their great menu and funky décor.
