The Gogama Chamber of Commerce is looking to make more of a professional mark in the community by moving into new quarters in the small hamlet of 550 residents, located about 100 kilometres south of Timmins. The organization's meetings used to be held in a former chamber member's basement.
The ribbon-cutting at their new offices was held June 13. Among the items on the new board of directors' agenda is to encourage more business and draw in more tourists. The community is working with the Timmins-based NEOnet to bring in high-speed Internet access and cellphone links. Also on their list of projects is a new town museum and festivals.
