The annual Mayor’s Dinner, organized by the Stouffville Chamber of Commerce, is always a must-go event for those in the Stouffville Business community. But this year, the peak networking event is going even bigger incorporating the re-energized Business Excellence Awards.
The Mayor’s Dinner, this year being held at Spring Lakes Golf Club at 4692 Stouffville Rd. on March 27, has traditionally been a launch pad of sorts for mayors to lay down a detailed view of what they envision for the Town and topics local businesses are interested in. This should be no different with Mayor Iain Lovatt marking his first event of the kind since being elected last fall.
But the mayor’s speech will, no doubt, serve as a fitting introduction to three awards that will be presented to outstanding local businesses – one for small (under 20 employees), a large (over 20) and a special recognition award. The first two are judged by a panel of four local business leaders and the last one awarded by the directors of the Chamber of Commerce
Nominations have been collected, submissions from businesses scrutinized and perspective recipients interviews. All that waits are the unveilings at the much-anticipated dinner.
As a bonus, a pre-dinner meeting will serve as the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting. That starts at 5 p.m. and is free to attend. But the dinner and awards begin with a cocktail reception at 6 pm and dinner at 7 pm with a cost of $90 per person (members).
