At its regular meeting earlier this week, the Board of Directors (BOD) of the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) finalized the nominees for this year’s Outstanding Business Achievement (OBA) awards gala.

The annual OBA gala – which has evolved into “the social event of the year” in Flamborough – honours and celebrates the very best in corporate excellence and community service. This year’s gala will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at the beautiful (after a $5 million renovation) Flamborough Hills Golf & Country Club. The entire gala will be taped for later broadcast by Cogeco community television.

The FCC has already announced that the Jim Aitkin of Rankin Environmental (charter member of the FCC) and Wilf, Tom and Tim Langford of the former Langford IDA Pharmacy will be awarded the FCC’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Jim’s widow Joyce will accept the award on behalf of her late husband while Tim will accept the award for himself as well as his late father and grandfather. The OBA gala provides a perfect venue for you to join us in acknowledging the contributions of this year’s recipients to our community.

The OBA awards selection process has changed somewhat this year with the FCC BOD naming only one nominee in each category. That means every nominee will receive an award. However – in order to maintain some level of suspense – which nominee won what award won’t be announced until the OBA gala.

Once we have formally informed the nominees, we will unveil who they are. Stay tuned!!
