You’re invited to the 2019 Business Recognition Awards
The Township of Rideau Lakes Economic Development Committee is inviting residents to attend the 3rd annual Business Recognition Breakfast to celebrate outstanding local businesses and entrepreneurs.

It takes place on Friday, April 5th at Morton Community Hall from 8:00 am to 10:00 am. Registration opens at 7:30 am, followed by a complimentary breakfast and award presentations. A $5.00 goodwill donation to the Morton Hall Board is suggested. Funds raised will go toward hall improvements and community events. Space is limited on the day of the event so it is suggested that if you wish to take part, you should arrive early.

Organizers wish to thank their judges from the Town of Smiths Falls and Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation, and wish the best of good luck to all nominees.
