Brookside to be honored by Delaware County Chamber

The Delaware County Chamber of Commerce will recognize several individuals for their service to the county’s business community at its 2008 Annual Dinner. Delaware County Chamber’s Business of the Year will be presented to Brookside Hardware, LTD of Margaretville.
“After the March 5th fire completely destroyed their business and flood damage from 1996, instead of closing their doors permanently, Will Finch, owner, chose to rebuild, making a huge financial commitment into our county,” stated Mary Beth Silano, executive director. “His employees’ jobs were saved which he should be commended for. In such a situation, we can only hope all businesses would do what you have accomplished. Brookside Hardware has proven to be truly dedicated in expanding our local economy,” continued Silano.
The Tourism Property of the Year Award will be presented to Hobart Book Village of the Catskills.
The Delaware County Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner will be held Thursday, Sept. 18, at The Andes Hotel, Main Street, Andes. Social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. with awards and dinner to follow. Tickets are priced at $60 per person, $115 per couple.
