A speaker in very high demand Mr. Legge’s trip to Cranbrook was made possible with the generous partnership of Community Futures East Kootenay.  “The ability for the Chamber to have a speaker of Mr. Legge’s caliper come to Cranbrook would not have been achievable without the CFEK partnership,” said Hull.
