Fernie presents business, community awards
On Friday, October 26 at the Best Western Plus, we were joined by an exceptional group of Fernie businesses to celebrate their success with our annual Business Excellence Awards Social.
With 144 people representing 48 different companies and local not-for-profits, we gave out 13 awards that celebrated our town’s champions in business and community.
It was quite the celebration and dance party! If you where unable to make this sold out event keep your eyes and ears open as we make next year bigger and even better!
Congratulations to all Fernie’s Businesses for a successful 2018 year.
