Chamber hands out business awards

Category: 

The Academy Awards may have seen Hollywood’s stars come out last night, but district businesses and individuals got their chance to shine in the spotlight here Saturday during the seventh-annual Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

This year’s award winners were:

•Safety Award (individual/employee)—John Reader (Ministry of Natural Resources);

•Safety Award (business/employer)—Riverside Health Care Facilities;

•Training & Adjustment Award—Confederation College;

•Entrepreneur of the Year—Kim Metke (Pharmasave/Clinic Pharmasave);

•Employee of the Year (not-for-profit)—Margaret Sedgwick (Fort Frances Library);

•Employee of the Year (private sector)—Jennifer Galusha (Kathy’s Katering);

•Customer Service Award (individual)—Carol Alton (Clinic Pharmasave);

•Customer Service Award (business)—Warehouse One;

•Business of the Year (1-15 employees)—Northwood’s Gallery & Gifts; and

•Business of the Year (16+ employees)—Manitou Forest Products.

Doug Cain also was given a special award for Volunteer of the Year for his work with the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship.

Cain had been nominated for Employee of the Year (not-for-profit), but the Chamber had decided he was not technically an “employee” of the FFCBC but a volunteer.

Please see Wednesday’s Times for complete coverage of the awards banquet.
