The Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce held its last ‘after-hours business mixer’ until next Fall, taking a hiatus for the summer.

The mixers held monthly and hosted at a different location each time gives Chamber members the opportunity to mix-and-mingle socially while networking their businesses.

Many members also donate prizes for business-card draws that add an element of fun to the events.
