2007 Powell River Horizon Business Awards

For the second year in a row, Powell River Books was nominated for awards for our excellence in business. What an honor. We ARE small but mighty!!

The Powell River Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures Development Corporation of Powell River and the PEAK newspaper annually sponsor the Horizon Business Awards. Everyone in the community has the opportunity to nominate businesses in a variety of categories when the PEAK runs full page nomination forms each fall. Nominees are then invited to an awards dinner held at the historic Dwight Hall in the Townsite. It is a wonderful part of the history of Powell River. You can just sit there an imagine all of the balls and banquets from the heydey of the mill after the turn of the century. And there we were, listening to Dave Formosa, the president of the Chamber and other dignitaries, waiting to hear the results.

This year we were nominated in the categories of Tourism and Home-Based Business (last year it was New Business of the Year and Tourism). We had our name in the program and heard it announced from the podium twice. That's an award in itself. Some of the awardees for this year were Westview Agencies as Business of the Year and Plutonic Power as Large Business of the Year. In our categories, the Powell River PEAK won for tourism with their Discover Powell River publication (how can you compete with that) and Sunshine Organics owned by Melissa Call as the Home-Based Business of the Year. Congratulations to these and all of the other recipients from Powell River Books. Business is booming in Powell River and we are proud to be a small part of it. -- Wayne and Margy Lutz
