A special recognition award was presented to Hyndman & Company Ltd., in celebration of their 140th anniversary and recognizing their company as a charter member of the GCACC since 1887.

Reminiscent of the passage of time, President Keith Lambe stated in his remarks, “Who would have thought 125 years ago that a permanent bridge would replace ice boats, that micro-brewery products would compete with rum from the Caribbean, or that a sector called bio science would even exist?”

This being the 125th Anniversary of the GCACC, the Chamber provided medallions to their guests in celebration of the occasion, a memento of the contribution the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce has made to the growth and prosperity of its membership, their businesses and the economy overall.
