4. Scotia Auto Glass: This has been a challenging couple of months and I hope all of you are well and doing your best while moving forward. This has been a difficult time for all Canadians but we will get through this together.
Although the first few weeks of the pandemic were challenging..... we have remained open and have adapted logistics, schedules and services to meet most of our clients needs. We have moved to 98% mobile service to ensure safety of clients and staff during auto glass services. The other 2% we have our OE camera Techs - Lane departure warning, Eyesight, camera lane assist calibrations have to be completed in a controlled shop environment.
Social distancing and updated cleaning methods lead us to developing our “Touchpoint 30” Disinfection Cleaning Program. Our program is designed to identify high traffic and touch points, where, when and which PPE needs to be used while servicing clients automotive needs. We have added Lexan glass partitions in our trucks to separate driver and passenger so they feel safer.
We have always designed and fabricated special glass for all sorts of projects and now we make sneeze guards and partitions for small businesses to get them opened as economically as possible.
So much has changed in the last 3 months, from loss of staff, strategic plans pivoting, "free gas", glass supply challenges, staying the "Blazes home", baking bread to family home schooling.
I don't know the future and I'm sure we will be fine but for now I can dream and work a plan for next week, then the next.
Feel and stay safe while opening,Thank you Ron

17. LaHave River Credit Union: Support Local Initiative

LaHave River Credit Union is calling on Nova Scotians to show their support for local small businesses with the launch of the Loyal 2 Local.

As part of LaHave River Credit Union’s ongoing commitment to community well-being and supporting local suppliers and small businesses, the credit union is asking the public to make a purchase at a local business and join a massive effort to promote those local businesses who have been impacted the most by COVID-19.

To get things started and to celebrate the re-opening of the Nova Scotia economy, each employee of the LaHave River Credit Union will receive $25 to spend locally and share it on social media, tagging LaHave River Credit Union and using #Loyal2Local.

“It’s been tough for our small businesses and we wanted to show our support. This is our way of supporting our employees, small businesses, and community” says, Corey Rogers, CEO of LaHave River Credit Union. “We’re asking our employees, members, and Nova Scotians to consider redirecting spending to local small businesses that need it most during this time. These small businesses buy services from other small businesses. That cycle continues, stimulating the economy, so on and so on,”.

“From the beginning of COVID-19 LaHave River Credit Union has acted in the best interests of staff, members, and our local community businesses.” Says Board Chair of LaHave River Credit Union, Frank Fawson.

The Loyal 2 Local will start on June 5th to align with the re-opening of many small businesses in Nova Scotia. LaHave River Credit Union will be sharing stories on social media channels throughout and encourage Nova Scotians to participate by supporting a local business and tagging LaHave River Credit Union on social media, adding #Loyal2Local.

Important facts to consider about Canadian small businesses*:
• Small businesses recirculate up to 4.6 times more revenue in the local economy than multinationals
• Small businesses recirculate up to 63% of their revenue back into the local economy compared to 14% for multinational corporations
• Small businesses produce up to 8.4 times more jobs per square foot & up to 8.1 times more revenue square foot than multinationals

Following our AGM on June 13 2019, The Chamber would like to welcome Jayme Rhyno to our Board of Directors. Here is a little bit about Jayme

"I'm a second-generation business owner of Rhyno's on North Street which was established in 1976 by my father. I first started working in the family business in my early childhood (my family jokes that I was fixing dishwashers before I could talk) and then officially took over as President in 2008.

I hold by Red Seal in Refrigeration (since 2006). I'm also a volunteer firefighter with the Upper Northfield Fire Department (since 2003). I've lived on the South Shore all my life - I grew up in Riverport then moved to Crescent Beach and I currently reside in Lower Northfield. This area has always been my home and I'm very much committed to Bridgewater being a hub for the business community, a place where local businesses feel supported and can thrive.

I'm proud to be serving on the board of directors and to have the opportunity to collaborate with other local business owners who have a strong desire to further develop, grow & expand the business community in Bridgewater."

Jayme
