Kimberley’s business community put on their semi-formal attire last Saturday evening to attend the annual Business Excellence Awards, sponsored by the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce.

The awards celebrate the important role that small business plays in Kimberley, and the people who put in the hours to make them a success.

There were two multiple winners, Pedal and Tap and Denai Bell for Ginjer Jar/Velvet and Ginjer.

Many other deserving recipients were honoured as well, such as the Kimberley Arts Council  being given the nod for Community Booster — appropriate since it was the Arts Council that conceived and were the primary drivers of First Saturdays, this past summer.

The evening’s keynote speaker was Dr. Tom Ristimaki and music was provided by Don Glaserud.
