Chamber 0f Commerce fetes its finest.

By Walter Byj

BURLINGTON, ON.  April 11, 2013.  As with all organizations, there is a time to work and a time to celebrate.  The movies have the Oscars, music has the Grammys” and sports have their all-star games and in some cases, award banquets.

Although they may be self congratulating and cliquish, there is sense and reason to pat yourself and your competitor on the back.

Members of the commercial community gather at the Burlington Convention Centre to celebrate and recognize each other during the Chamber of Commerce Awards evening. 

And so, on a cold and wintry spring evening, the Burlington Chamber of Commerce held its’ business Excellence Awards and recognized those companies that excelled in Burlington over the past year.  The awards and the corresponding winners are as the following:
