Awards bring business, community together
As the weather turns a little cooler, it's time for some annual recognition to take place. This week, the Barnwell County Chamber of Commerce held its awards night during their annual meeting.
Each year the Barnwell County Chamber of Commerce recognizes a small business, a large business and an individual/organization for their contributions to the community. These award winners not only provide jobs but also enhance the quality of life in Barnwell County.
This year, Barnwell Veterinary Clinic took home the honors for Small Business of the Year and Dayco Products took home the Large Business of the Year.
Barnwell County Chamber of Commerce board member Rhonda McElveen presented the two businesses with awards saying these businesses play "vital roles" in our community, including contributing thousands of dollars to area non-profit organizations like the United Way and Relay for Life.
The third award, the Community Service Award, was given to the Light of the Lamb Outreach Ministries. This local group not only helps local individuals in need but also helps support other community groups, including Axis 1 and Ashleigh Place Home for Girls.
The people behind this group and these businesses are our friends, neighbors and sometimes they are our family members.
We are honored to call each of you our neighbors, and we encourage others in the community to band together to support each of our residents.
"Nobody can do it alone," said Angie Boyles, chamber director, after the presentations.
Chambers of commerce are organizations which band together their business community to build support, educate and create communication amongst employers, employees, and the public.
Barnwell County has a vibrant Chamber of Commerce and the award winners are this year's cream of the crop.
Congratulations to Dayco Products, Barnwell Veterinary Clinic and Light of the Lamb Outreach Ministries!
