A big thank you to Nanaimo Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue – Station 27 for hosting a stellar Business After Business. We enjoyed seeing our members networking, and wearing their orange life jackets with pride. The boat tours were busy and yes, fun. We got to learn about this strong volunteer based organization… yes – a fully volunteer based organization that saves lives on our waters.
The Nanaimo Marine Rescue Society (NMRS) is responsible for raising the funds necessary to operate RCM-SAR Station 27. NMRS is a registered charitable organization in Canada, and all donations are tax-deductible. There are no administration fees and no hidden costs when someone donates. With no paid employees, every dollar raised by NMRS goes towards purchasing and maintaining the search and rescue equipment. All equipment, including boats, is purchased through funds raised by donation. Very impressive – and they make a difference here in our community. Check out all that they do here.
We also want to thank 2 Chefs Affair‘s owners, Tammy and Dan, for the truly tasty treats. The bacon wrapped plums were delicious.
Save-On-Foods – Brooks Landing were the beverage providers. It was a warm night, so we were all appreciative of the cold water and juice.
A thank you to all our members and soon to be members for coming out. September’s Business After Business is on September 24th at Noodle Box at Port Place.
