A Golden night not to be missed

The community will come together on a grand stage.

This is a reminder of the Kicking Horse Chamber of Commerce Community Excellence Awards Gala on Oct. 22.

Come celebrate with the community of Kicking Horse Country the many successes we have achieved in 2011 and a special celebration of the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge 10th anniversary.

The deadline to turn in photos of the bridge over the years has been extended to Oct. 21. You can email submissions to khpbridgephotocontest@gmail.com.

The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce will be awarding the top 15 businesses, the Town of Golden will be spotlighting a community volunteer, and the Golden Area Initiatives has selected a recipient for the Peter Bowle Evans Award.

This event is open to the public and you don’t have to be a member of the Chamber to attend. During the dinner you can relax to the soft classical guitar of Leo Downy while later in the evening you will get to hear local musicians and dance to the tunes of John Jenkins and band. You won’t want to miss this event.
