We celebrated our 4th Year Anniversary Event with many great memories from the beginning to where we are today.  It is with our sponsors and members who made it all possible.  Thank you to our association sponsors: McLeod Windows & Doors, Source Office Furnishings, Usha Pawluski Professional Corporation, Good Buddy Restaurants, and Londonderry Mall.  Thank you to Oct 16 event sponsors: Telus, McConachie Gardens by Revera, Evergreen Funeral Home, Resonate Music School & Studio and Brock Kryton Photography.  It was great to have the many business tradeshow vendors and community groups showcasing their products and services at the event.  Thank you to Sharon MacLean for your presentation on Lost in Space - Your Social Media Masterpiece.  Many wonderful tips and ideas were provided to increase your brand presence for business growth and return on assets. 
Special thanks to MLA Chris Nielsen (Edmonton-Decore), Councillor Aaron Paquette (Ward 4), Councillor Darren McCann (Town of Gibbons) who brought greetings from their perspective areas and gave us updates and news on issues affecting businesses and residential area.  Thank you for joining us to celebrate NEBA's 4th Year Anniversary.
Thank you also to Councillor Bev Esslinger for the recent updates giving us a heads up on many wonderful things happening in Ward 2 at Community Leader's Discussion Event.   Looking forward to seeing these great initiatives come in for current and future growth opportunity!
We end this newsletter edition with a sad note to wish Sandra Stemmer all the best.  Sandra's presence is required in other areas at the moment and as a result, effective immediately, Sandra is stepping away from NEBA to focus on other priorities.  Thank you very much for being with us during October.  We hope you take care and best wishes in everything.
