APBOT welcomes PanAm Games to Ajax

Posted 7 years ago on · Permalink

The Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade (APBOT) joined the chorus of voices welcoming the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games to town on the occasion of today’s official opening ceremonies and encouraged the community to help pack a viewing party this evening and celebrate our role in the games.

“We are pleased to welcome athletes, officials and fans to Ajax and are excited to be the host community for the baseball events,” said 2015 APBOT President Denise Jones, CPA, CA of Collins Barrow Durham. “We would also like to commend the staff at the Town of Ajax, the volunteers and all of the organizers of Toronto 2015 for the many hours of hard work already completed in preparation for the games. We wish everyone the best of luck.”

Earlier this year, APBOT selected long-time member Jeff Quipp of Search Engine People to represent the community as a torchbearer in the relay leading up to the games.

“The Games are also a chance for businesses in Ajax and Pickering to show their innovation, leadership and expertise to a global audience and demonstrate why more and more people are choosing our communities to live, work and play,” said Jones. “We are looking forward to showcasing what our community has to offer.”

The public is invited to a Pan Am Opening Ceremonies Viewing Party & Live Broadcast at 6:30 p.m. this evening at St. Francis Centre for Community Arts & Culture on 78 Church St. S. in Ajax but seating is limited. For information about this event call 905 619 2529, ext. 2787 (ARTS)
