Chances are you've heard of the Welcome Wagon; a Canadian-owned, free welcoming service for families experiencing a variety of lifestyle changes.
Did you know, that we're fortunate to have an AWESOME chapter of this service right here in our own backyard? Our Welcome Wagon embraces families, couples, and singletons who relocate to the beautiful Alberni Valley. If the affordable Real Estate prices here weren't enough, this warm welcome will be sure to make moving here an absolute joy!
We thought we'd sit down with Megan Warrender of our local branch, to learn more about what they have to offer.
Tell us a little about the Welcome Wagon in Port Alberni - what do you do, and what kind of services do you provide?
The Welcome Wagon is a free greeting service to link individuals new to town in with the community. As well as personalized marketing for businesses. I am always working together with the City, the Chamber, and many local professionals in the Valley to brainstorm ways to connect with new residents; whether it is through events or social gatherings.
What do you love about welcoming people to Port Alberni?
I love to connect with new residents and link them into the community. I am passionate about connecting people. However that looks, whether is it socially, or to local businesses, groups etc. People are so appreciative of the service. I answer questions and just spend time connecting with people.
Is there anything else we should know about the Welcome Wagon in Port Alberni?
I am born and raised in the Valley, this community is home to me. And now as I begin to raise my family here I love spending my time linking into everything that goes on in the Valley. It truly is an amazing place to live. My passion is to share that with everyone new to the community.
We love your enthusiasm, Megan! Thanks for all you do.
