Last night was such an amazing event at the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon where the Lindsay District Chamber of Commerce celebrated its annual Evening of Excellence. I had the privilege of photographing this year’s event, which celebrates the communities highest achievements in volunteerism and business. It was a great evening filled with many laughs, acronyms and a few happy tears were shed too.
The evening started with a presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to Chris Karkabasis, a rare and special award given for his contribution to business and his presence (wearing many hats!) in the community of Kawartha Lakes. Locals were recognized for excellence in customer service, arts, tourism, marketing, youth mentorship, design excellence, not for profit excellence and many more. Both awards to Adam Hayward of Nesbitt’s Meat Market for Business Leader of the Year and Robyn McNabb for Citizen of the Year, closed off the evening on a high note. It was such an honour to capture the individuals, organizations and businesses that truly make our community of Kawartha Lakes such a great place to live and work. A big congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
