Enderbeer & Wine Festival

TICKETS ON SALE AT THE VISITOR CENTRE, GILBERT’S AUTO PARTS AND ONLINE AT TICKETSELLER.CA

https://www.ticketseller.ca/tickets/event/enderbeer-wine-festival

The Enderby & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that they will be hosting the 5th Annual Enderbeer & Wine Festival this year! We have some large shoes to fill as the Enderby Fire Rescue Society that created this event has made it an incredible success for 4 consecutive years and definitely an outdoor summer event favorite in Enderby, so we’ve been working very closely with them during the planning stages and incorporating their suggestions into our new event.

Back by popular demand, Enderbeer is heading back to the Lion’s Gazebo for a very casual, relaxed outdoor summer event! And to add to that, this year…we’ve gone country!! We are very excited to have Ben Klick, country music guitar slinger from Kelowna as our entertainment this year! Ben’s guitar driven modern country sound fused with traditional roots is guaranteed to take you on an engaging journey!

This beer tasting event, established years ago by the Enderby Fire Rescue Society has evolved over the years incorporating the bountiful of incredible wineries, distilleries and cideries we have in our neighboring communities. With very few breweries in our area, over the years the Enderby Fire Rescue Services has collaborated with breweries in our region and throughout British Columbia and brought in their product and offered volunteer pourers. This year, they planned on changing how this was ran and we have taken their suggestion and opted to create a long serving bar with all your favorite breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries at the same price per ticket of $2/drink; 4oz. for beer and ciders, 2oz. for wine and ½ oz. for distilled spirits.

Check out our Facebook page to keep up to date on event news, and exciting new additions to this year’s event! https://www.facebook.com/enderbeerandwinefestival/

Multi-community Job Fair Connects Job-seekers with Employers

ENDERBY—Organizers behind the upcoming North Okanagan-Shuswap Employment and Business Fair say this event will be a unique and valuable opportunity for local job-seekers to meet dozens of potential employers from across the region.

More than 50 businesses and organizations will have booths at the inaugural event, taking place March 11 at the new Splatsin Centre in Enderby.

 “We are very excited to be part of such an incredible collaboration and to bring so much opportunity under one roof. It’s amazing! ,” says Ali Maki, executive director, Enderby & District Chamber of Commerce. “Whether you are looking for a job, a career change or educational opportunities—or you’re showcasing your business, there is plenty to see and learn.”

Organized jointly by the Splatsin Development Corporation, Enderby and District Chamber of Commerce and the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce, along with support from Nexus BC and Community Futures North Okanagan, the fair gives prospective employees a chance to learn more about specific companies as well as future opportunities and how to secure those jobs.

 “This can be anything from training to what they look for on a resumé to how they expect their employees to conduct themselves, etc. Employers, in turn, will get a sense of what job-seekers have to offer and are looking for,” says Connie Viszlai, business services advisor, Community Futures North Okanagan.

Several major employers will also host presentations, including Interior Health, Kohler, Agri-Trans, Kingfisher Boats, the Splatsin Development Corporation and Yucwmenlúcwu (Caretakers of the Land) LLP, a cultural and natural resource management company that provides a complete range of environmental, archaeology and forestry services.

 “Together, with the support of all of our partners, we feel this event will benefit job-seekers, employers and businesses. We hope this is the beginning of an annual event,” says Patti Noonan, executive director of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce.

All job-seekers should come prepared to talk about their skills and bring along their resumés.

With WorkBC centres located at Community Futures North Okanagan in Vernon, Kindale Developmental Association in Armstrong and the Nexus BC Employment Resources Centre in Enderby, a range of employment services and resources are offered to those looking to build their resumés, access resources, acquire training, and more heading into the job fair.

The North Okanagan Shuswap Employment and Business Fair is a one-day only event and takes place Monday, March 11 from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Splatsin Centre, 767 Old Vernon Rd. Enderby.
