On April 23, the Quyon Lions put on a dinner for members of the local business community at the local Legion hall. About 50 people turned out for the event, enjoying good food, networking opportunities, and even a little fiddle music.
Organizer and charter member of the club, Laurie MacKechnie, said that event was a spin on their typical bi-monthly meeting.
“I'm the one looking after this. We don't normally meet here but the Legion was good enough to let us use this [hall] to hold our meetings,” he said. “People get the impression that there aren't many active businesses in town, and we want to bring them together. Hopefully it will stimulate some business.”
MacKechnie knows all about the business world, having worked in real estate and as the owner of the local grocery store.
After a meal, Lion Eddie McCann thanked the attending business owners and elected officials.
