An organization with its very roots in the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce is being recognized as “Member of the Month” for December.

Tourism Sarnia-Lambton, the organization that stretches the length and breadth of Lambton County, serves as the lead advocate for promoting opportunities to visit the place we’ve come to love.

In fact, it was in 1999 that the Chamber created the organization that later became Tourism Sarnia-Lambton, according to a history of the Chamber that was published by the Sarnia Historical Society.

“Tourism Sarnia-Lambton is a proud partner and member of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce,” said Mark Perrin, executive director. “Our relationship has always been a mutually beneficial one and we enjoy working together to create a greater tourism economic impact and growth for Sarnia-Lambton businesses to thrive on. With Tourism Sarnia-Lambton being selected as the ‘Member of the Month’ we are humbled and thrilled to receive this recognition for our efforts and accomplishments this year.”

Shirley de Silva, Chamber CEO and president, echoed Perrin’s sentiments.

“We’re pleased to recognize the very significant and mutually beneficial relationship that continues to exist between the Chamber and Tourism Sarnia-Lambton,” she said. “For years now, and for years to come, we expect to work very closely in helping to fulfill the goals of both organizations for the betterment of our entire community,”
