Thank you to our Sponsors - We would like to like to thank the amazing support of the business community for their contributions of sponsorship for the awards ceremony:

I think the future of Smithers’ business community is bright. There’s a new generation of people starting out and taking over old businesses in the community, supplying new ideas and breathing life into this town. The people here are friendly and support each other, but I think that the best thing about our town is the diversity of people here.
