Mary Nelder, current Manager of LAMBAC, nominated Entrepreneurs Sharon & Mike Meeker for the 25th Anniversary Award.  They are joined by Marg Hague, LAMBAC Manager 25 years ago.  One of the Conference highlights was celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Community Futures Program.  Certificates were presented to 23 CFDCs that have been in operation for 25 years (some even longer, prior to the CF Program.)  As well, Meeker Aquaculture was honoured as an entrepreneur who has been in business for 25 years.  This thriving business received the very first loan cheque provided by LAMBAC CFDC of Gore Bay on Manitoulin Island.  The business has grown to include not only a large fish farm operation, but also compost material production from fish waste.
