On May 9, the Pemberton Chamber of Commerce held their first annual Open House event in the Industrial Park. This was a great opportunity for local residents to come out and see what the businesses in the Industrial Park have to offer! Of course AC Petroleum and Lizzie Bay participated in this Open House event, and set up a tent at our cardlock here in the Industrial Park. Some other participating businesses included Big Al's Car Wash, the Pemberton U-Brew, Goodlife Cafe, Sabre Rentals, Mainroads, Mountainview Storage, the Pemberton Distillery, and many more! Each participating business was marked with a single red balloon at the end of their driveway and participants were given maps to guide themselves through the Industrial Park.
The weather cooperated with us, and it was a beautiful hot sunny day! We set up a pop-up tent to try and shade ourselves from the heat, and had an ice cream cooler full of different flavours, provided by the Pony Restaurant. These cones were given away free of charge, as well as our Lizzie Bay and AC Petroleum goodie bags, filled with assorted candies. We also had a draw for a free 20 lb. BBQ propane tank - congratulations to the winner, a local gentleman by the name of Jeff Hesthammer!
We also had an AC Petroleum fuel truck and Lizzie Bay logging truck on display with lots of balloons! Overall it was a great day, and we look forward to next year's open house!
