Socially celebrating holiday season

5a7lowresSUMMERSIDE – Dec. 11, 2014 – Even though there was torrential rain and not a snowman in sight, the members of the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI created their own holiday celebration atmosphere during a Christmas social at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside.

Twenty-seven people showed up to network, to eat fricot and chili and to exchange best wishes for the holidays. Participants had ample opportunity to laugh and even sing a bit during a good game of Christmas trivia. Everyone received gifts and won prizes.
