I currently serve on the Cary Chamber Board of Directors as Vice Chair for Member Business Services, so I was involved in the program by recognizing several winners.  I presented the Community Service Award (Wine and Design of Cary), the Employer of the Year (Masterpiece Home Improvements), and the Charitable Parterns Award (The Carying Place).  Kathy Burns, Chair for the Cary Chamber, presented the rest of the awards.  I was so happy for our friends (and fellow Rotarian) Alphagraphics (Ed & Carol LeClair) for their award in the Green Plus category (meaning they are using ‘green, energy efficient, and environmentally’ practices & materials in their workplace).

  Several honored guests were at the small business awards luncheon, including Mayor ProTem for the Town of Cary, Gale Adcock, and other elected officials.  Mike Gallagher of Huntington Learning Center gave out the Entrepreneurial Award to Panther Creek High School.  I’ve been a judge for that award in the years past and it is always an exciting one to see who wins!  Smith & Smith, CPA client, Tom Wyrick of WHIZard Academy for Mathematics & English read over the judges’ critique for the small business awards and introduced the judges.  This program makes you so proud to be part of the Cary Chamber…let alone the Cary Community!!!!!  Congrats to all of the winners from the small business awards luncheon!!!!  Everyone, include the nominees AND the winners, should feel proud! As always, thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet for selecting the lovely black sheer layered dress for me to wear to this event!
