Taking care of business at the OBA awards

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Business suits were traded in for black- tie and tails last Saturday night, as some 175 people tuned out for the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) Outstanding Business Awards at the Flamborough Hills Golf Club.

The theme of the evening was "Celebration," and that's just what it was, with a number of new features designed to keep the focus on the men and women who not only do business in Flamborough, but make it a better place to live, work and play.

Thanks to corporate sponsorships from CanReg, Cogeco, Opta Mineral Inc., the UPS Store, Weeks Home Hardware, the fundraising component of the evening was unnecessary. Ridgeway Florist was also on board, providing flowers for the evening, Flamborough Springs provided water for the tables and Flamborough Review was media sponsor.

The FCC also introduced its Lifetime Achievement Award to recognize past or longstanding members for their contributions to the community. This year, the nod went to Charles and Margaret Juravinski, former owners of Flamboro Downs (represented for the evening by former MPP Brad Clark) and Archie McCoy, founder of McCoy Foundries, Real McCoy Sports and the Rockton Real McCoys Jr. A hockey team. Charter member Ernie Weeks of Weeks Home Hardware also received the honour.

Sandra Gray of Weeks Home Hardware was on hand to hand out the Community Service by an Individual Award - now renamed in her honour - to Charlie Cetinski of Flamborough Springs. His daughter, Susan, collected the plaque. Waterdown Collision got the nod for Community Service by a Business.

Debbie and Todd Osborne of Village Children's Centre earned the Business Growth and Development Award, and Otto Dobisek, owner of the Bohemian Banquet Centre, was honoured with the Chamber of Commerce Service Award.

Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Aldershot MPP - and former mayor of Waterdown - Ted McMeekin presented the Town of Flamborough Award to Ralph Naccarato of Pantano Contruction, for his many projects in downtown Waterdown.
