Some 340 Brandon businesspeople gathered at the Victoria Inn’s Grand Salon on Sept. 19 to first mingle and then listen to guest speaker Ferio Pugliese, president of WestJet Encore.
Pugliese spoke about what Westjet coming to Brandon will mean for local Brandon businesses and about the future of air service in the area.
The luncheon was sponsored by Sunrise Credit Union.
That company announced that its Brandon branch will be upgrading to a new 15,000-square-foot facility on Victoria Avenue. At 2405 Victoria Ave., it’s part of developer Kirk Brugger’s plan for a part of the former Fleming School site.
