This past week we were honored with the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce's Business Excellence Award for a Medium Size Business.

This was a bright spot in a week that had plenty of other challenges for a Small Business like ours (i.e. Stock Market-small businesses have 401K's and in general are greatly affected by the market. The many concerns regarding the Coronavirus when you have 50 plus employees and customers in your care each day). In addition, we are still trying to clarify the rules for the new taxes in Oregon that have not been written yet but we are subject to.

So, all of that aside, let's celebrate the bright spot – our BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARD!! I want to thank our employees and our customers – no recognition comes without acknowledging these great people. We just have the best employees and customers on the planet! Our employees begin each day with a willingness to serve. Each day, I see them go above and beyond on behalf of Gresham Ford and while we try, they certainly do not get the recognition they deserve!! So, while this Coronavirus thing has us keeping social distance and being politically correct precludes this – I just want to give them a big grandmotherly hug! That is not too creepy right? Anyhow, Congratulations!!! You deserve this award and so many more!!

While I understand the seriousness of recent events – please more than ever, take time to frequent local businesses. We all can be successful if we support each other!! And support is more important than ever to Main Street when Wall Street is having a bit of turmoil! Please shop local!

You count on us to stay informed and we depend on you to fund our efforts. Quality local journalism takes time and money. Please support us to protect the future of community journalism.
