Nomination deadline Saturday for Chemainus Golden Brush Awards

It’s time to vote for who’s the best in Chemainus.

The Chemainus and District Chamber of Commerce is asking its area residents to nominate businesses and employees for the annual Golden Brush awards.

"Last year I had people telling me that they wanted to nominate a favourite business, but it was too late," Chamber coordinator Jeanne Ross said.

The area covered includes Chemainus, Saltair, Thetis Island and Crofton.

All nominations must be received by the Chamber Nov. 1 in order for the selection committee to choose the winners before the big Golden Brush Awards dinner Saturday, Nov. 29.

Paper nominations may be dropped off at the Chemainus Visitors Centre, 9796 Willow Street, faxed to 250-246-3251 or mailed to Box 575, Chemainus, B.C., V0R 1K0.
