We were unable to attend the gala but this is what the wonderful people at the Chamber of Commerce had to say:
Wintergreen Maple Products and Pancake Barn celebrates their 30th anniversary in business this year. The 120 acre sugarbush, restaurant, retail store, catering and event centre has become a valuable part of the community.
Families enjoy the pancake weekends as a time to reconnect and enjoy delicious local food along with warm greetings from the Dawson family. (The free toys are a hit with the kids as well!)
Diane organizes and hosts the charity food festival and has enabled local producers a way to connect with customers while raising funds for local charities.
Each year wintergreen expands its retail food offerings with innovative syrups and sauces along with preserves.
Many area youth have also grown up happily working for the Dawson's and still keep in contact from around the country.
The Dawson family are committed, enthusiastic members of the community and always strive to put customers first.
