The Lac du Bonnet Community Development Corporation attended the Interlake Outdoors Show in Arborg, Manitoba. The show was a well-organized event hosted by a team of community volunteers, the Bi-frost Recreation District, and JP Events.
Having attended several events organized by JP Events, the EDO recognized a partnership opportunity to produce a tradeshow in Lac du Bonnet that would focus on attracting the Eastern Manitoba business community and artists.
A committee was formed, including members from JP Events, NC Linsey Creative, ZAMM Communications, Barrier Bay Resort and the Lac du Bonnet CDC, to produce and host the Great Outdoors Expo in Lac du Bonnet.
This event will become an annual event in Lac du Bonnet, hosted on the first weekend of May. The profits from the event will be used for Lac du Bonnet CDC Operational Expenses and to fund Community Initiative projects the CDC is working on.
