Over 60 people were on hand Monday evening to recognize five significant contributors to the Algoma community at the annual Business Industry and Education (BIE) Awards Banquet. The event was held at the Hotel Stebbins and saw North Water Street Bakery win for business improvements. Algoma Lumber won the industry award. The education award went to Lori Miller from St. Paul School and the Live Algoma Coalition. The aesthetic award went to Timber Trail Campground for their website design. Algoma Area Chamber Executive Director Sara Krouse says the evening concluded with a special recognition for Algoma Motors.
Krouse says the annual BIE Awards Banquet is a special and emotional event that brings together the core people of Algoma that are working to make the community a better to live and work.
