A lo­cal busi­ness has been nom­i­nated at the pro­vin­cial level for two Al­berta Busi­ness Awards of Dis­tinc­tion.

Dry Canyon Col­lecta­bles, op­er­ated by Lynn and Mike Fabrick, learned they have been nom­i­nated for the Al­berta Small Busi­ness Award of Dis­tinc­tion and the Arts and Cul­ture Award of Dis­tinc­tion.

Nom­i­na­tions closed at the end of Oc­to­ber, and now the win­ner will be se­lected from

“Con­grat­u­la­tions Dry Canyon Col­lecta­bles, you have made a sig­nif­i­cant im­pres­sion on some­one, enough for them to nom­i­nate you for one or more of our awards.” Lynn is hum­ble. “Whoever nom­i­nated us, it is just a great hon­our. They know who they are, and we thank them,” said Lynn.

Dry Canyon Col­lecta­bles has been a fix­ture in down­town Drumheller for five and half years, of­fer­ing a unique shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence. Lynn has been pre­vi­ously nom­i­nated for the Woman En­tre­pre­neur Award of Dis­tinc­tion in 2015. In 2013, they spear­headed a cam­paign to sup­port close by first na­tion com­mu­ni­ties fol- low­ing the flood.

“Ed­u­ca­tion, that’s im­por­tant for us,’ said Lynn.

It has been a busy sea­son for the Fabricks and the store. Along with main­tain­ing the beau­ti­ful store and gallery pro­mot­ing pri­mar­ily lo­cal, Al­berta and Western Cana­dian col­lecta­bles, cel­e­brat­ing first na­tion arts, they were the pri­mary driv­ers to bring a pow­wow to Drumheller on Canada Day. They man­aged to raise funds through in­spir­ing the com­mu­nity to sup­port the event.

The Fabricks were just awarded the Arts, Cul­ture and Com­mu­nity Award at the Drumheller Busi­ness Awards of Ex­cel­lence.

The Al­berta Busi­ness Awards of Dis­tinc­tion were founded in 1992 and were orig­i­nally pre­sented by the Al­berta Gov­ern­ment. In 1996, the Al­berta Cham­ber of Com­merce took over the man­age­ment and pre­sen­ta­tion of the awards. The win­ner will be pre­sented at a gala in Ed­mon­ton on March 8, 2018.
