Letter to the Editor – Entrepreneur of the Year


Dear Editor,

It was a joy to read about two young women who have been voted as entrepreneur of the year for North Grenville by the Leeds Grenville Small Business centre. Both Meagan Cumming and Karin Rabuka are talented and very hard working women who have grown their business in our community to the point where we can be very proud of their successes and passion for their work.

It is unfortunate that Meagan Cumming received a three column write up in the paper and Karin Rabuka received one sentence only. Karin has been roasting fair trade organic highest quality coffee in her North Grenville Roastery for several years and has been supplying her fresh roasted coffee to B&H and Johnson’s Independent grocery stores in Kemptville.

In the last two years she has launched a mobile café in her NoGo Coffee Truck.  She has served coffee at special events including the International Plowing Match and Kemptville Live.  As well she travels to fairs and markets to serve her specialty coffee.  She was also parked at The Station on Hwy 43 this past summer several days a week.

Karin and her staff are a big asset to our town and are well deserving of her Entrepreneur of the Year Award for North Grenville.

My comments are in no way meant to diminish the efforts of Meagan but to  fully recognize the efforts of both these exceptional North Grenville women entrepreneurs.  Meagan received the Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Karin won the Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

David Herman
