Do you know any chamber of commerce business members that you feel should be recognized for their hard work?
Nominate them for an award. Deadline is Sept. 25.
The Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce awards program will recognize businesses for their hard work — and this year has a special addition.
A new category will honor a business that is not a chamber member.
“The theme this year is ‘A Night at the Ponoka Grand Old Opry,’” said Brenda Raab, chair of the business awards committee. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The Oct.16 awards night will include Elvis and Patsy Klein impersonators, as well as a “hurricane bar” that will contain a variety of drinks from Nashville.
The categories for awards are: small business, large business, customer service, industrial, entrepreneur, agriculture, people’s choice, and an award to a non-chamber business.
To nominate a business or to purchase a ticket call Raab at (403) 704-1200 or (403) 783 – 3888. Nomination forms can be obtained by visiting www.ponokalive.ca. awards night will kick off Small Business Week, Oct. 19 to 25.
