"After Hours"
with Barrington Brolly - Feb 27

Joan Barrington "retired" to Gibsons and within a few years her interest in creating reproductions of vintage parasols and umbrellas had blossomed into a thriving business. Her painstaking attention to detail, solid craftsmanship and impeccable research are recognized worldwide. Barrington Brollies are part of the costumed display at numerous "living museums," have strutted the Victoria's Secret catwalk, appeared on screen and on stage. Yes, those parasols currently appearing with Bette Midler in the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly were made in Gibsons.
How did Joan parlay her interest and ability into an international online business? Come to our February "After Hours" at the Gibsons Chamber office on Tuesday, February 27 from 5:30 - 7pm. Refreshments! Amazing business card draw prizes! Free for members; $10 for non-members. CLICK HERE to reserve your space - we'll have your glass and plate ready for you.
The Coast's got talent - here's where to find it!
Work BC will be hosting three - count 'em, 3! - Job Fairs this spring. The February 16 session at the Sechelt Band Hall connects employers and skilled trades workers. Pender Harbour is the focus of the March 9 session at the PH Community Centre. The series wraps on April 6 a Coast-wide hiring fair at Gibsons Area Community Centre. This is an excellent opportunity for business owners to link to all WorkBC's resources for hiring, training, and grant programs to ensure staffing and service will be seamless during the busy summer season.
