The Welland/Pelham Chamber’s Annual Award Celebration took place on October 19th 2018 at Lookout Point Country Club. The venue was buzzing with excitement as local business owners, ambitious youth and philanthropic citizens enjoyed live entertainment, delicious food and wine and cider tastings. 
Nominees for the 9 businesses and community awards were treated to a talk-show style presentation as recipients came to the stage to collect their award. 

Shining a light on the outstanding businesses and citizens within Welland and Pelham is what this event is all about. And although only 9 awards were handed out, each and every person in the room is an important and valued part of the community!  The Chamber thanks and commends all nominees, sponsors, partners and volunteers for their part in making Welland and Pelham such wonderful places to live, work and play!
