Thank you to everyone who came out to our annual Chamber Business 2018 Awards and Casino night. Below are our recipients of this year's awards:
Business of the Year - Santa Lucia
Since it's acquisition by Taso and Natasha Simeonidis, Santa Lucia has continued to set the standard for excellent food and a welcoming atmosphere in Morris. Through consistently changing and developing a menu to meet local diner's needs, to insisting on only quality, fresh ingredients, Santa Lucia demonstrates a commitment to delivering quality food.
In addition to this, Santa Lucia has continued to reinvest in their property. From interior renovations to it's bar and restaurant, to physical improvements on the outside of the building, Santa Lucia looks great on our main street.
It is always wonderful to see entrepreneurs come to Morris - it is even better to see them set up roots and invest in our community.
Congratulations on winning this well deserved award.
Entrepreneur of the Year - Integra Tire
Since starting the operation of Integra Tire in Morris, Randal, Marshall and their entire team have been dedicated to providing competitive prices and excellent customer service to all of their customers. Through excellent service on everything from car, agricultural and highway tractor tires, Integra Tire has been a great example of how local business can thrive when it works hard to earn local business.
Integra Tire has also embraced the Morris community and have been involved with Stampede Kickoff, the Morris Fire Department and the Dekalb Super Spiel. Randal has spoken very proudly of the support they have received in the community for their business and how much they appreciate the community as a whole.
Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you build on your success.
Volunteer of the Year - Bud & Shelley Stupnisky
We are very pleased to recognize Bud and Shelley for their contribution to Morris and Area as volunteers.
In 2018, Bud and Shelley were instrumental in co-chairing the Communities in Bloom conference in Morris. Their connections were valuable in making the conference a success and in bringing out excellent speakers, including Mark Cullen.
They are also active elsewhere in the Community and we see their involvement with other organizations including the Morris Legion Ladies' Auxiliary, the Public Library and the Curling Club just to name a few.
Thank you for you contribution to our community.
