2012 Business Awards

Our 2012 Business Awards Night was held on Saturday 3rd November, at the Dungog RSL Club, Lord Street, Dungog. Our Awards are one way the residents and fellow business owners of our District can show their appreciation and thanks for all the hard work and effort that business owners and their staff put into their business. Everyone enjoyed a great night of not only networking with other businesses in the district who attended but the very deserving Winners and Runners Up were very surprised and pleased with their Awards. Our Hostess, Pru McDonald did a sterling job and was a great help to our MC Felix Prentice and with the selling of the raffle tickets.
