Help Us Boost Local Vernon Businesses
Hello. I’m Lisa Salt. My husband, Gord Fowler, and I were talking one day about small business owners and what an important part they play in making Vernon a friendly, warm, and wonderful place to live. So Gord and I and the rest of our Salt Fowler Real Estate Team decided to give them some recognition. We decided to Sponsor the BEST OF THE BEST LOCAL BUSINESS Awards program for Vernon.
We received this email, which makes it all worthwhile:
“Thank you so much for following up. My auntie doesn’t have social media so I put this page up for her. I will pass this message and info along. I can tell you however how much it truly meant to her to win this. We all moved from Alberta and she bought Lunch Matters… Breakfast Too with all she had and she puts her everything into it. Lunch Matters is her home and the customers her family! She works long hours and goes in every weekend even though they are closed to work. She was beyond happy. Thank you for making her smile :):)”
