The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce handed out 10 awards last night at the Annual Business Awards of Excellence.
WOODSTOCK - The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce handed their annual excellence awards.
Leslie Farell who owns a Tim Horton's Franchise in Woodstock won the Presidents award. Farell won the award in part because of the work she does in the community for the United Way, Handbags for Hospice and so much more.
She was honoured to win.
"When your part of the community you do things because it is the right thing to do, not for an award, you do it because it is the right thing to do. I'm really proud to be a part of this community. I just want to thank the Chamber for acknowledging what I do and again I don't do it for recognition, I do it because I love my community."
