Those other stops include London and Kitchener-Waterloo.

“We’re able to show all the great things going on here,” added Gladu, who is a member of Ambrose’s party. “We can always use an advocate,” Gladu said.

The luncheon, hosted jointly by the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Sarnia, is 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Aug. 10. Tickets are $50, or $400 for a table of eight.
