Columbia Power powers local events

Columbia Power is helping to sponsor two seasonal celebrations in Nakusp

Columbia Power is helping to sponsor two seasonal celebrations in Nakusp: the Christmas Parade, coordinated by the Nakusp and District Chamber of Commerce, occurring on Friday, November 25,  and the Arrow Lakes Arts Council’s annual Christmas Pantomime, courtesy of Mirror Theatre, taking place at the Bonnington Arts Centre Saturday, November 26.

Columbia Power has provided a $750 sponsorship to the Nakusp and District Chamber of Commerce in support of the Christmas Parade and a $1000 sponsorship to the Arrow Lakes Arts Council in support of their 2011-2012 Concert Series. Along with the Christmas Panto, Columbia Power will be specially sponsoring the Time Capsule Tour magic show on February 21.

Audrey Repin, Director of Stakeholder Relations and Communications for Columbia Power, came to Nakusp on November 23 to meet with organizers of both events, Michele Williams of the Naksup Chamber and Janet Royko and Marilyn Massey of the Arrow Lakes Arts Council.

“We are so happy that we can support the community of Nakusp as they celebrate the holidays,” said Repin, “We would like to recognize the efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, Arts Council and their many volunteers in facilitating these great community events.”
