Grand Bend Chamber honours Paddington’s and Colonial/Gables

The Grand Bend Chamber of Commerce named Paddington’s owner Jen Gaukroger its entrepreneur of the year, and named the Colonial Hotel and Gables Bar the business of the year for 2009.
The awards were presented at the chamber’s annual general meeting Thursday night at Hessenland Country Inn in St. Joseph.
Guest representatives from Saugeen Shores also shared their first impressions of the area at the meeting (see our story from our visit to Saugeen Shores and my editorial comment).
The Grand Bend Strip will profile Jen Gaukroger in the November 19 edition, and the owners of Colonial and Gables in the December edition.
