2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce, and they couldn’t be more proud to celebrate their centennial with the community they’ve championed since 1919.
Because you only turn 100 once, their plan is to celebrate this milestone all year-long, culminating in September with one of the biggest parties they’ve ever thrown!
Come twist, jive, jitterbug and even moonwalk through the ages to the music of the Time Benders, a wildly entertaining group that changes genres, eras, and costumes more than a dozen times in a single set.
