Last week we featured a video from Fort Saskatchewan Chamber President and Owner of the Retreat Salon and Spa, Alan Skoreyko, on the importance and impact of Mix 107/fortsaskonline.com. 

Thank you Alan for your comments!

For the next few weeks, we'll be sharing stories from community members about the importance of Local Radio and what it means to have a local radio station.

Your comments are always welcome and we appreciate the feedback.

This week, retired Economic Development Director and active Rotarian, Terry Stacey, shared her thoughts of what MIX 107 means to Fort Saskatchewan.

Get ready, it's almost here!

The 2014 Fort Saskatchewan Trade Show and Sale, brought to you by the Fort Sask Chamber of Commerce is right around the corner. April 25th, 26th and 27th to be exact.

This event is one of the highlights of the calendar year in Fort Sask and thousands from our city and around the area flock to the Dow Centennial Center to check out a variety of booths and exhibitions from local retailers, commercial and industrial companies, organizations, sports teams, and many more.

There's plenty of variety with a little something for everyone. There is always the highly popular and adorable baby crawl, local entertainers, the money machine, and plenty of tasty treats such as the addictive sugared mini donuts.

You can also win some really cool stuff too. For example the Via Rail prize package to Vancouver valued at $4500 is back for this years show and there are often things like BBQ's and more availabe to be won, not to mention many individual raffles and draws held at exhibitor displays.

Exhibitor floor space is limited if not sold out by now, but if you are looking to book your spot, call the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce today at 780 998 4355 or go to their website at www.fortsaskchamber.com

Mix 107/fortsaskonline will be on hand through the course of the weekend and encourage you to say hello to our friendly staff. They would love to meet you and answer any questions you have about the station or website.

For more info on the new transit system and it's routes check out the story from Jonathan Milke.
