The Municipality of North Grenville has announced the winners of the third annual North Grenville Business awards.“When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we were unfortunately no longer able to plan for an in person ceremony. Instead, we found a creative and virtual way to recognize business and community leaders in North Grenville,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.
“The innovation and versatility demonstrated by our local business community is what makes North Grenville a wonderful place to live, play and invest”.
“We would like to thank our business community for all that they do. The pandemic, while creating additional challenges for local businesses, has also highlighted the strength and support business leaders bring to North Grenville, even during difficult times,” said Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman.
The Kemptville BIA were well represented in the award categories, and Debbie Wilson, OTK BIA Board Chair, commented: “We are truly blessed to have such a strong and diverse business community in the downtown area and across North Grenville. Best wishes to all other nominees and winners who contribute so much to our community on a daily basis”.
