I attended the Presidents Ball last night with my wife Beth, Ted Knight, Membership Director at the Ridge, and his wife Cathy at the Charles W. Stockey Centre in Parry Sound. The Presidents ball is put on by the Parry Sound Chamber of Commerce and is an event were the chamber awards local businesses for their efforts in within the community. There were many deserving businesses that have worked hard to grow their business and serve there customers throughout the year.
It was a great surprise and honour that The Ridge at Manitou Golf Clubs name was announced by Andrew Ryeland, President of the Chamber of Commerce for the Presidents Award for the night. This award is selected by the President of the Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the significant contributions it’s recipient has made to the business environment in the Parry Sound Area. It was a total surprise to us that we were being considered for this award. I wish to thank Robin, Ted, Travis, Jerry and Janet for the efforts they put in on a daily basis to help make the Ridge a special place. I also would like to thank the Owner of the golf course, Udo Petersen, and his Daughter Nicole for there continued support to the management team at the Ridge. Without them, none of this would be possible.
All in all is was a great night with great food, music and friends and I look forward to attending next years Presidents Ball.
