Unlike the recent Oscars ceremony, there was no controversy or confusion when announcing the winners of last night’s Meadow Lake and District Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards.
The 12th annual MLBEX Awards ceremony was held March 15 at the Meadow Lake Civic Centre and saw Meadow Lake Welding and Machine Ltd. walk away as this year’s Business of the Year recipient.
“Kent East purchased Meadow Lake Welding and Machine Ltd. a few years ago,” noted Chamber administrator Adriane Ouellette when summarizing information provided as part of Meadow Lake Welding’s nomination package. “This shop is never too busy to help anyone who has a welding need.”
The nomination went on to read East never hesitates to help out customers in need of his services, while he’s also been a long-time supporter of local programs and organization in terms of providing both time and money. Among those which have benefited from his help are Meadow Lake Minor Hockey, Meadow Lake Minor Baseball and more.
