MORRISBURG — As the Morrisburg Arena buzzed with activity behind the open door behind them, South Dundas Chamber of Commerce and municipal politicians presided over the official opening of the South Dundas Spring Home & Trade Show, Friday evening (April 21).

Mayor Evonne Delegarde expressed “a big thank-you to the Chamber for organizing this event once again this year. It gets bigger and better every year.”

“I think all I want to say today is thank-you to the organizing committee … for working so hard to put this together,” said South Dundas Chamber of Commerce President Tom Morrow, also expressing gratitude to event patrons for turning out at the event and helping “keep our business community alive.”

Event Chair Tracey Veinotte highlighted the work put into erecting signs for the show by Dick Kropp and Fred Zandbergen. In a special acknowledgement, she also touted the ongoing efforts of Geraldine Fitzsimmons for the Chamber. “Geri’s so busy putting everybody else in the spotlight that she forgets to take credit for all the effort that she puts into this, which is huge.”

This year’s show featured a new dining area in the lobby surrounded by greenery, potted plants and patio furniture — assembled by Williamsburg-area landscaping firm proprietor Erin Schuler-VanGilst of Create It! Garden Design & Installation.

The show concluded Saturday evening.
