The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY JAR­RYD BARCA

Nom­i­na­tions not just com­ing from Corowa is a propo­si­tion that ex­cites Corowa Busi­ness Cham­ber Pres­i­dent Mary Hether­ing­ton, as the count­down con­tin­ues to the big night.

“The Cham­ber is re­ally look­ing for­ward to this year’s gala din­ner, we have been re­ally pleased with the amount of en­tries that have come for the busi­ness awards,” she told The Free Press.

“The nom­i­na­tions do cover the area of Corowa, but we have en­tries from Mul­wala, How­long and even Urana. It’s been very ex­ten­sive which is great be­cause we’ve re­ally cov­ered the Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil area.

“The Cham­ber felt it was very im­por­tant to be in­clu­sive, par­tic­u­larly as the coun­cil has been in­cred­i­bly sup­port­ive of the busi­ness awards both fi­nan­cially and in kind.

“It has also been a great op­por­tu­nity to meet some more fab­u­lous peo­ple who are run­ning some very ex­cit­ing busi­nesses through­out the Coun­cil area and we hope to keep this con­tact go­ing with them mov­ing for­ward.”

Ms Hether­ing­ton also said she is thank­ful for the sup­port of the spon­sors for the Corowa Busi­ness Cham­ber in al­low­ing the event to hap­pen, those be­ing Canns Bus Man­age­ment, Corowa Free Press, CIRCA, Corowa RSL Club, Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil, Health Cul­ture, Hether­ing­ton Plumb­ing Ser­vices, IGA, Ki­lara
