Over the weekend not only did the time change, but a terrific time was held for the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce Awards at the Vernon Lodge and Convention Centre. For all the details on all the winners list, see the NEWS link at beachradiovernon.ca. Also, for those who’d like to see a few of the costumes and decor of the derby theme, SCROLL DOWN. Our 1075 Beach Radio staff included Graham Turball- Play by Play Announcer for Beach Radio BDM Motorsports Vernon Vipers Hockey/Marketing Consultant, Helen Belford-Marketing Consultant, Brenda Dittrich-Creative Writer and yours truly-Melanie-O’Hara-Disc Jockey!
Fascinators and other high fashions with the derby theme in mind, made for great conversation. A costume that really stood out was worm by Nixon Wenger’s Val Trevis. She was a “Kentucky Derby Doo Doo Doll” in charge of horse stall cleanup. Ha Ha!
Chip the horse was a hit for photos as well.
Organizers even had a fun race for participants with a horse race on screen!
As mentioned all of the winners list can be found on the Beach Radio “NEWS” link, but here’s a bit of video of the Business of the Year Winner for BX Press Cidery!
Congratulations to all of the winners!
