Nominees for ACOC’s Business Excellence Awards revealed

 

Special to the RTT

The Amherstburg Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the nominees for its 12th annual Business Excellence Awards.

Over the last four weeks, the Chamber has been accepting nominations for the awards and was thrilled with the number of nominations they received.

“We had so many nominations come in and it was really hard to choose winners in the categories,” said ACOC board member and awards co-organizer Ray Bezaire. “Amherstburg is lucky with the choices of local businesses that we have. There is really no reason not to shop local. It was great to see our community have no trouble coming up with names of nominees.”

The Chamber will also be honouring retired Shoppers Drug Mart associate Mary Ann Wolff with a lifetime achievement award.

“With Mary Ann retiring from Shoppers this year, the Chamber felt it was a great time to honour her with this award,” said Bezaire. “She has been a great supporter of the Chamber and our community.”

The gala event where the winners will be announced will be held at Pointe West Golf Course March 31. Nominees are encouraged to bring family, friends and their staff for a great dinner and an evening of networking and socializing with other members of the business community.

Tickets are $50 and are available at Gibb Insurance, located at 535 Sandwich St. S. (next to Tim Hortons). The phone number is 519-736-8228.

“Tickets will go fast now. Get yours before they are gone,” said Bezaire. “The venue is great but seating is limited.”

CAO John Miceli will also be making a presentation and giving updates on the exciting projects the town is working on.

“We are looking forward to hearing from John and getting more information on the Belle Vue project, the Duffy’s project among others.”
