Chamber special honors on Thursday agenda


The public will find out the chamber’s “Achiever of the Year” and “Business of the Year” at the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce award luncheon at noon Thursday at the Moose Lodge in Grand Coulee.

The chamber sent ballots out recently, asking membership to make their preferences known.

Five people have been nominated for “Achiever or the Year”: Debbie Bigelow, Coulee Medical Center administrator; Birdie Hensley, Electric City council member and president of the Senior Center; Kerry Higgins, chamber president owner of Trail West Motel and co-owner of Coulee Hardware; Scott Hunter, publisher of The Star newspaper; and Jerry Sands, former mayor of Electric City and co-owner of CJ’s Storage.

Those nominated for “Business of the Year” were Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union, Coulee Hardware, Coulee Medical Center, Coulee Playland Resort and Loepp Furniture.

Last year, the chamber’s own executive director, Peggy Nevsimal, was voted “Achiever of the Year” and Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union was named “Business of the Year.”

Two new board members will be selected from the ballots sent out and will be introduced at Thursday’s noon meeting.

The public is invited to attend.
