On Monday, January 31st, 2011, the Beausejour Brokenhead Development Corporation in partnership with the Beausejour & District Chamber of Commerce presented the first ever “Our Home, Your home” welcome plaque to Knysh Funeral Chapel.
Mike Knysh accepted the plaque in honour of the business. Presenters were Ray Schirle – Representing the BBDC as Chairperson, Sylvia Albert – Representing the BBDC as Marketing Director, and Ken Zirk – Representing the Beausejour & District Chamber of Commerce. The Clipper Weekly and the Beausejour Review were present to take photos and to report on the presentation and celebration.
The 8 x 10 mounted and engraved plaques were produced locally, and are a joint project between the BBDC and the Chamber to welcome new business to the area, to foster good relations, create a source of pride locally, and to wish the new business owners every success in the local area.
It is hoped that the future recipients will hang their new plaques in a place of honour in their establishments.
