Excellence in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows business lists now ready

Awards for excellence in March but list of nominees is now

Excellent businesses will be rewarded in March.

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce has some work to do – figuring out who to bestow the Business Excellence Awards to this year.

However, the group has some time to make its decisions about which business will receive awards for Community Spirit award, Agri-Business, the Non-Profit, Small Business, Medium Business, Big Business and Business Leader.
