THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ---- January 21, 2015 --- The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce 11th Annual Central Canada Outdoor & Recreation Show is pleased to announce that the Build A Boat Contest is back. This is a great exercise for children to work on at home or in the classroom as it thrives on stimulating young minds and inspiring creativity.
