Last week, during our Zoom Club meeting, we had a great presentation from a group called Recover Shuswap.  Our presenters were and Lana Fitt and Jocelyn Johnson.
Shuswap Economic Development, Shuswap Tourism, Salmon Arm Economic Development Society, Community Futures Shuswap and the Tsuts’weye Women’s Entrepreneur and Innovation Network have come together to develop and implement a Phase I response to the economic impacts currently facing Shuswap businesses and organizations.
