SBC Monthly Meeting – 7:00 a.m., Thursday Oct 8th – Art Aylesworth, Owner Peetz Outdoors

Hi all,

For October’s meeting Bill Cooke will be on holiday and I’ll be coordinating yet another excellent speaker for our Sidney Breakfast Club Meeting.

This time we are featuring the story about the re-birth of a local manufacturing company, Peetz Outdoors (originally founded in 1925), that has recently secured new ownership and is adapting to new times, technologies and export environments. Art Aylesworth, as the new owner of Peetz Outdoors, will be talking to us about the resurgence of the venerable local manufacturer and about the rising consumer demand for quality products made in Canada.

Note also that as we continue to operate in an informal setting without PPT, if you would like to find out more about Peetz before listening to Art, you can check out the company link @ http://www.peetzoutdoors.com/.
