Business After Hours – June Hop
June 9, 2021 the Kawartha Chamber hosted our second Virtual Hop! Although we are not able to visit businesses in-person, we wanted to make the most of our virtual format and ‘visit’ businesses we wouldn’t usually get to! The Zoom platform allowed us to ‘visit’ more locations and let us to see behind the scenes of some great businesses. Participants also got the opportunity to network and connect with businesses in our community. Our 2021/22 Networking events, including this event are sponsored by Herod Financial Services.
