Our Awards of Excellence will be presented at our 19th Annual Awards of Excellence and Social Gala on Thursday, November 8th at Lakefield College School. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Due to the event’s growth over the past few years, we have decided to change our format for this year’s event. This year, we are having a hor d’oeuvres-style social event rather than a sit-down dinner. There will be both silent and live auction items, a cash bar, music from Rhythm & Grace, and time for socializing and networking before the awards.

Tickets for this year’s event are only $40, so bring along your staff and join us for an evening celebrating local businesses in Peterborough and the Kawarthas! Tickets are available now – you can either purchase them online through our website or in-person at our office at 12 Queen Street in Lakefield.

You can also join our Facebook event page for our Awards of Excellence & Social Gala.

Thank you to our Social Gala Sponsor Shorelines Casino Peterborough.

President’s Notes – April 2018

Welcome Spring!

This is my favourite season. As a gardener, I am grateful for the #WealthOfChoice of garden centres & greenhouses in our area.

With spring arriving, so do our new volunteer Board members. I want to thank Garry Douglas, Chair of the Nominating Committee for working so hard to get a wonderful mix of volunteers from a wide range of industry sectors to represent the members for the 2018-19 year. We calculated the average age of our Board members and it is 43 – young for any organization, especially a nonprofit. We are very proud to have well over 50% female representation on our Board of Directors, I follow a long line of female Presidents. Cindy Windover has been a terrific role model and I am so pleased that she has chosen to remain on the Board as our Past President. Thank you, Cindy! (more…)
