What’s in Store: Rich Coleman to address Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce

When the provincial government gets in hot water, it seems the Liberals always call on this man to help clean up.

I’m talking about Langley’s own Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, who is going to be the guest speaker at this coming Tuesday’s chamber dinner.

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is hosting its monthly dinner meeting at Cascades Casino on April 15, starting at 5 p.m.

Those interested in hearing from the deputy premier, minister of Energy and Mines, and minister responsible for Housing can attend.

The cost is $35 for chamber members, $50 for non-members, and people must RSVP to the chamber at 604-530-6656 or info@langleychamber.com.

Entrepreneur class offered

Libraries are always a great source of information on a multitude of subjects, including the topic of entrepreneurship (say that 10-times fast).

Anyway, the Aldergrove Library is hosting a free information session for those out there thinking about working for themselves.

A Small Business BC representative will offer some basics about starting a small business during a two hour session on

Tuesday, April 22, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Contact the library if you’re interested in attending, at 604-856-6415

Loblaws fighting hunger

With all the Loblaw stores in or near Langley pitching in – that being Superstore, Extra Foods, nofrills, and Independent Grocer – there could be a lot of extra food filling the shelves of the Langley Food Bank by the end of the month.

The local stores are all expected to help out in the parent company’s Extra Helping food drive, which started last Friday and runs through to April 24.

During this period, customers are being encouraged to donate non-perishable food or funds at the checkout to help fight hunger.
