Board of trade names award winners

Recipients have been announced for this year’s Stettler Business and Citizenship Awards, to be presented

Recipients have been announced for this year’s Stettler Business and Citizenship Awards, to be presented in late October at the annual gala.

The announcements were made in a press release issued by Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development president Joyce Kiryk on Tuesday, Sept. 23.

The awards will be presented to winners at the gala on Oct. 23 at the Stettler Community Hall, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the cocktail hour.

“The nominees are sent in from the general public, and from our members,” explained the board of trade’s executive director, Aubrey Brown.

The final selections are made by a board sub-committee, he added.

“It’s just a good atmosphere for people to recognize the nominees and the winners,” said Brown, who also promised an excellent meal and an opportunity for networking.

The gala’s featured entertainer is country singer-songwriter Randi Boulton, who was raised in Big Valley and is now based in Red Deer.

Boulton, who has shared the stage with performers like Mavis Staples, George Fox and Aaron Pritchett, released her second album, Randi with an “I”, this past summer.
