Terrace Standard

City to get a windfall of chairs

The city of Terrace will inherit 150 chairs after a major mining conference is held here in 2013.

For Minerals North 2013, expected to bring up to 600 people to Terrace next April, $4,500 in sponsorships has been collected to purchase enough chairs to host the event.

The chairs, which the city will keep at the Sportsplex after the event, were picked as the focus of three $1,500 sponsorships by a conference committee after it discovered Terrace was lacking enough to host a major event.

The chairs will be padded, said Carol Leclerc, who was been handling sponsorships for the event.

“Not those hard plastic ones,” she said.
