What a wonderful event, Thursday, June 23rd. Definitely the place to be after the past 2 years that we have been through. The general comment from everyone seemed to be – it’s so good to see you!
The event I am talking about is of course the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. A much smaller event than it has been in the past but I thought it was one of the best events in a long time as it was small and so very much more personal. It has certainly pivoted as have many events due to Covid!
Mcs Bill Hallman and Dan Allaire (seen in header photo with Citizen of the Year Lee Theodore and his daughter Nora) were awesome as always keeping the audience entertained and the presentations running smoothly and thanks to Angela Beros of the Chamber the St. Lawrence Ballroom at the Ramada was beautifully decorated.
