Chamber extends nomination deadline

CENTRE WELLINGTON –  The Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce has extended the deadline for Awards of Excellence nominations to March 5.

Awards are given in 2022 for achievements in 2021.

There are 13 different award categories plus Long Service Awards for businesses celebrating 10, 25 and 40 years in business.

There is also a category for businesses who celebrated one year anniversaries in 2021.

“I think we can all agree 2020 was a heck of a year to start a business,” event organizers say.

The chamber is planning a hybrid gala on May 31, with an in-person gala at the GrandWay Events Centre in Elora.

Ticket price has not been set but it will include dinner and entertainment.

The event will also be free to those who watch virtually.

Anyone can nominate a business and businesses don’t have to be chamber members to be eligible.
