Businesses and individuals in Ponoka that have been providing their customers with great service will have the chance to be formally recognized for their efforts on Oct. 17.

The Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce’s 2008 Annual Business Awards gala is well on its way and the community can have their say on which businesses they think should be awarded.

Brenda Raab, one of the organizers of the awards, believes that the awards are important to Ponoka and encourage good service.

“It’s a way for people to recognize businesses in town that go above and beyond,” said Raab. “It’s a great way to bring the community together and show support.”

The community can nominate a business as many times as they wish and Raab says that some nominations have already come in.

Nomination forms for the business awards are available in the Ponoka News, Accu Publishing, Ponoka Town Office, financial insitutions, the Chamber of Commerce, on www.ponokalive.com and other various areas around town.

Nominations should include a description of the nominee and the reasons for nomination. Categories include: Small Business of the Year, Large Business of the Year, Agricultural Business of the Year, Customer Service Business of the Year, Business Woman of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Industrial Business of the Year and Chamber Member of the Year.
