An award went to Buena Vista Regional Medical Center for their 26-million dollar development and expansion project. Redenbaugh also presented an award to Methodist Manor Retirement Community, where 30 additional jobs were added as their expansion continues.
Other winners were Edwards Auto, which has doubled their lot space and increased showroom space by one-third… the Storm Lake Times, whose editor Art Cullen received the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing… and to Cindy Bosley and Curt Ellison of Bozwellz and Lake Avenue Lounge, where planning is underway for their 7th annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
