To wrap up Small Business Week this week, the Chamber has teamed up with Local Lounge and Grille to hold a “Tweetup” on Friday, Oct. 25.

This casual meetup will allow local twitter users to socialize and get connected, while encouraging those who are new to social media to have fun while getting in some practice.

The Tweetup will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at Local Lounge and Grille.

Join the conversation at #SummerlandBiz.

New ownership

Summerland’s bowling alley has reopened under new ownership. Owners Brian and Linda King have renamed it High Roller Lanes Summerland, and they are open 2 to 10 p.m. daily.

They are busy with staff training and welcoming new league teams, so watch for more news as they ramp up for their first season.

Just around the corner from the bowling alley, another business has changed hands. The Beijing Restaurant is now under the ownership of Wing Ning Chau.

Originally from China, Chau moved to Vancouver 18 years ago, but says he was drawn to Summerland for the Okanagan lifestyle.

Studio tour

Several Chamber members have joined in an upcoming event showcasing Summerland art.

The Summerland Studio Tour weekend runs Nov. 2 to 3, and 15 local studios will be open to the public, including Calvin R Gallery, Cherry Tree Quilts, Delong Studio, Elizabeth Wrobel Photography, Red Willow Forge, SASS, Stacy Studios, Summerland Art Gallery and Trout Creek Studio. Pick up a tour guide at the Visitor Centre, or visit studiotour.wordpress.com/ for more information.

Kiwanis elects new president

Associate Chamber members, Summerland Kiwanis Club, have elected a new president. Tom Jacques has taken over from past president Robert Beers, and the club’s new vice-president is Leo Kolodychuk.

On the move

Spokes Clinical Naturopathy has moved from Victoria Road North to a new office space at 13001 Henry Ave.

Dr. Bryn Bentham opened his practice in Summerland one year ago and is looking forward to providing even better service at his new location. The business has also expanded to welcome a new team member, administrator Leisha Anderson.

Anniversary

Congratulations to Edgy Petals, as they celebrate their four-year anniversary. Owner Arlene Fenrich thanks her clients and the local business community for their support, which helps keep business blooming.

Renovations

Nesters Market has now completed the last of their renovations that started this spring. The latest changes include the aisles being re-arranged and all new shelving installed, allowing room for more than 1,700 new items.

Along with new lighting in the produce department, the outside of the store has been repainted.

Another building on Victoria Road has a fresh new look. This time it’s Giant’s Head Realty that is sporting a lovely new paint job.

Over on Jubilee, renovations on the Credit Union building are ongoing, with the addition of a rather grand new foyer.  The Credit Union has confirmed that they won’t be letting a little renovation work stop them from hosting their popular Santa’s Workshop for Festival of Lights this year.
