If your business is located in Alliance, and you were not recognized at the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce’s recent Business Alliance Awards, you might want to think about how you spent the last 12 months. The Alliance chamber recognized 85 local businesses for their contributions to the city at a mid-March reception.

Kathy Stroia, president of the chamber, kicked off the ceremony by handing out 82 Golden Spade Awards to new and/or recently expanded or remodeled businesses.

In addition, special awards went to the following: The Small Business of 1999 award was presented to East Ohio Stone owners Ed and Carol Allenbaugh; Francisco DeLeon, owner of Don Pancho’s Tex-Mex Cafe, won the Large Business of 1999 award; and the Spirit of Enterprise Award went to Richard C. Sherer, owner of R.D. Williams Office Supply.
