The executive and membership of the Souris-Glenwood Chamber of Commerce have welcomed their new President, Julia Teichroeb, with the upcoming Spring Fling being the first major event for the new executive team.

Julia and her husband Joe, own and operate Just Call Joe Inspections from Alexander, MB.  The February Chamber meeting was Julia's first time as a new member, and when the opportunity presented itself to join the executive team, she jumped at it!

"It's actually kind of a funny story," she explains. "I was at my very first meeting when Loretta asked if there was anyone who would want to step up and take the President's position. Going to chamber I always wanted to become a member of the executive just because of the different things that I've done in the past."

"I didn't think it was going to be at my very first meeting," she laughs. "But it was!"

"It wasn't planned," adds Teichroeb. "But I'm happy I took the plunge."

Through Just Call Joe Inspections, the Teichroebs provide a variety of services that include home and commercial building inspection, water sampling and septic and sewer line inspection.  They opened their home-based business in March of 2023 so there are a few firsts for this family.

Julia is a busy mom and wife, and business owner with her husband.  She is also an instructor with Assiniboine Community College for the online Administrative Assistant course.

Julia is surrounded by a strong team of business owners and board members. Past-president, Lorretta Turner, will remain on the executive board to continue coaching the new president.

With Spring Fling just around the corner (May 3-5), Julia and her Souris Chamber team are busy putting the last touches to their weekend event that features garage sales across the entire community, and more.  They've opened up the rink to facilitate a trade show type opportunity for local businesses and artisans. But they've also extended the invite to businesses and artisans from the Souris-Glenwood borders.  

For those who want to rent a table at the rink, contact the chamber, or drop in at LT's Corner Store.
