‘Lunch Among the Trees’ an Annual Community Affair in Prince George

PRINCE GEORGE – You can definitely feel the change from fall to winter in the crisp Prince George weather these days. With Christmas just around the corner, many businesses are already preparing for staff holiday coverage, secret Santa gift-giving events and festive staff Christmas parties.

Fitting a staff Christmas party into an already busy schedule near Christmas may feel more like an item on the ‘to-do’ list rather than a true holiday celebration. But it is so important to make time for out-of-office celebrations with employees and their families that many businesses wrestle with the best way to create these casual connections and build relationships with their team.

A unique and convenient option for both Chamber members and other businesses in Prince George is our Chamber’s ‘Lunch Among the Trees’ that takes place during the Festival of the Trees on Wednesday, November 30th at the Civic Centre. With just under 300 seats at this lunch, it sells out year after year as one of our most popular events.

For the affordable price of $40 per member or $50 for future Chamber members, you can treat your staff to a delicious traditional turkey luncheon while enjoying carols sung by the Bel Canto Choir.

Your guests will also be inspired by an RBC Olympian keynote speaker and then finish the experience with an opportunity to wander and enjoy the lights and décor of the Festival of the Trees.

We’ll be spreading the spirit of giving by encouraging our guests to bring a donation of non-perishable food items for the St. Vincent de Paul Society. All donors will be entered to win a Kobo eReader & gift card.

If you’ve never been to Festival of the Trees before, or even if you make a point of going annually, be sure to share this festive experience with those in your office of place of work. And if treating your staff isn’t in the budget or you have other holiday party ideas, join us by organizing a lunch date with co-workers and join us on November 30 at Lunch Among the Trees.

Tickets may be purchased by contacting the Chamber by phone at 250.562.2454 or online at www.pgchamber.bc.ca under the ‘Events’ tab.

Hope to see you at the event!
