It has been a busy summer here at the Pomeroy Inn & Suites brand office; from rodeos and festivals to road shows and hotel openings, so if you haven’t seen the team out and about, you obviously haven’t been at the best summer events.
The good times started with a bang during Stompede week here in Grande Prairie. It all got going on Thursday (May 30) with our 2nd Annual Pomeroy Inn & Suites charity BBQ in support of Encana’s Race Against Hunger initiative. As with last year, the BBQ was a huge success raising $1300 and donating thousands of lbs. of food all over Alberta and BC. After the BBQ it was on to the Friday night VIP tent at the Chucks. The night was filled with great food, great friends, and a great showing from our Pomeroy Inn & Suites rider, Mark Sutherland.
Three weeks later was the second annual Pomeroy Guitars & Wagons weekend. Quickly becoming the go to concert event of the summer in Grande Prairie, this year saw Doc Walker and Corb Lund take the stage and entertain everyone in attendance.
For those of you fitness buffs out there, this summer also saw the return of the Pomeroy Inn & Suites Race Series. This year’s series saw five races (up from last year’s three) with over 500 triathletes taking part, staying fit, and having fun.
July 5 was the biggest day of the summer for Pomeroy Inn & Suites. Not only did Mark Sutherland run our tarp at the 101st Calgary Stampede, but we welcomed another hotel into our family; Pomeroy Inn & Suites at Olds College officially opened its doors. Located on the grounds of the beautiful Olds College campus, our Full Service Pomeroy Inn & Suites in Olds, Alberta has the spirit of a friendly rural lodge with the modern amenities of a big city hotel.
As you can see the summer of 2013 has been a busy one here at Pomeroy Inn & Suites, but busy isn’t bad…busy is exciting!
