Dear Chamber Members,
We hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We know that these unprecedented times have had an impact on many of your businesses.
As a way to assist you during this time, the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer you a great opportunity to help our economy and support our chamber members, through a partnership with the FanSaves Helps Gift Certificate Program. This online platform allows people to buy gift certificates from your business (even if you are closed or limited in your services) to be used once you are back up and running. There is no charge to you to participate, and they will manage all of the paperwork and reporting for free.
All you have to do is to sign up is fill out this online form: https://form.jotform.com/200865271814253
How it works: Once a gift certificate is purchased through the FanSaves Helps website, the buyer will receive a digital gift certificate with a unique code that will be tracked for you in a spreadsheet (which you will have access to). Any money received on your behalf will then be transferred to you via Direct Deposit or e-transfer within 14 days (minus any credit card transaction fees that may come off the top).
The buyer can then print off their gift certificate and bring it to you. You can then keep track of the balance however it works best for you (some businesses are transferring it to their own gift card program others can use the old school method of tracking the balance right on the printout). You will receive regular reports from them to
Please feel free to contact Geraldine Fitzsimmons via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 613-543-3982 or cell 613-341-6765 if you have any questions regarding this program.

Re: 2020 AGM & Annual Spring Home & Trade Show
In keeping with the Eastern Ontario Health Unit’s recommendations and the current provincial state of emergency prohibiting all organized public events of over 50 people, the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce will be postponing the following two events – the 2020 Annual General Meeting and the 2020 Annual Spring Home & Trade Show.
Please feel free to contact Geraldine Fitzsimmons at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns regarding the postponement of these events. Paid registrations for the trade show will be transferred to the new date.
These postponements are regrettable. But your Chamber remains actively supportive of the health and safety of the both the business community and our community at large. We look forward to having the opportunity to resume these important events later this year.
Wishing everyone health and safety during these constantly evolving and challenging times.
The Executive & Directors of the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce
