Business Award Winners for 2017

Congratulations to these three and to all the other well deserving nominees.

Langford Canoe Goes to Bloomington, MN, Man
The suspense is over. On Oct. 21, Murray Moose drew the winning raffle ticket for our Langford Canoe. And the winner was: Ron Wutchiett of Bloomington, MN. In the photo below, Murray is handing the winning ticket to Jim Boyd, Chamber executive director.

The canoe was delivered to Mr. Wutchiett in the middle of a snow storm on Friday, Oct. 27. Mr Wutchiett, who was quite excited to be the new owner of a Langford Prospector,  is an old hand at caring for wooden canoes, so the Langford is in very good hands.

In our raffle, we sold just more than $17,000 in tickets. After all expenses are paid, we should net around $12,000 for the 2018 Great Place Project. You can learn more about the Great Place Project by going here: http://becausemovingmatters.org/greatplaceproject/

Thanks to everyone who helped make the raffle a success.
