(GANANOQUE, ONTARIO) Gananoque is moving into a brighter future, according to Gananoque 1,000 Islands Chamber of Commerce President Joe Baptista. The Chamber held their annual breakfast, titled “Forward Vision”, at Cousins on King in Gananoque on Friday August 23. The three speakers for the morning’s program were MP Gord Brown, Leeds-Grenville; MPP Steve Clark, also Leeds-Grenville; and Baptista.
“We have a multi-faceted plan for the Chamber,” said Baptista. “One of the things that’s become very evident in this day and age is that the Chambers need to be run more like the businesses that we serve.
