Kootenay Lake’s Tom Lymbery named 2018 BC Chamber Fellow

He’s 90 years young, exudes entrepreneurial spirit, and makes Kootenay Lake a better place to live and do business.

He’s 90 years young, exudes entrepreneurial spirit, and makes Kootenay Lake a better place to live and do business. For these reasons and more, the BC Chamber of Commerce is honoured to give Mr. Lymbery the well-deserved title: “Fellow of the British Columbia Chamber of Commerce.”

Mr. Lymbery was the co-founder of the Kootenay Lake Chamber of Commerce back in 1979 and continues to attend monthly meetings. He adds knowledge, context, and depth to each meeting and continues to spearhead issues he is passionate about, which recently included changes to the Kootenay Lake ferry service. An entrepreneur at heart, Mr. Lymbery still contributes to running his local family business, The Gray Creek Store, established by his father in 1913.

The BC Chamber Fellow Award recognizes exemplary past and present members of their local Chambers/Boards who have displayed outstanding past or present service to the Chamber of Commerce movement in BC.
