NORWICH – Commerce Chenango is proud to present the “Woman-Owned Business of the Year” award to Dinnett Moore, the “Employee of the Year” award to Elise Glassett and the “Non-Profit of the Year” award to the Chenango Historical Society. The awards will be presented at Commerce Chenango’s 11th Annual Membership Appreciation Luncheon that will take place on Wednesday at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich. It is sponsored by Preferred Mutual Insurance Company and The Raymond Corporation.
The “Woman-Owned Business of the Year” award is presented annually to an active, established business owner with recognizable success and sustainability. Dinnett Moore, owner of A Touch of Moore in Norwich, was chosen to receive this award because of her entrepreneurial distinction and faith in herself, her business and Chenango County. Moore has worked hard to get where she is today and it shows in every part of her business. Moore and her staff conduct themselves in a manner that fosters and promotes high ethical standards. Due to her expanding customer base, she is planning a move to a new location later this year.
The Employee of the Year program was established to encourage teamwork, excellent customer service and a high level of dedication to member businesses. Elise Glassett has been with Sidney Federal Credit Union for over 16 years. She provides top-quality customer service with a smile and a high degree of professionalism and exemplifies one of the Credit Union’s core values … “People Helping People.” She has volunteered for organizations such as Bainbridge Rotary and Birthright of Sidney, and she also helps to coordinate Sidney’s Hometown Day Parade.
The “Non-Profit Organization of the Year” award is presented to an organization that has provided a unique service to improving the quality of life in our Chenango County. The Chenango County Historical Society’s mission is “To lead and support the advancement of research, education, and enjoyment of Chenango County’s history and historically significant assets.” Visitors to the museum will find exhibits with artifacts from virtually every community in the county, including the building. From 1896 to 1956, generations of children passed through the doors of the Rexford Street School in the days before it became a museum. The Norwich Pharmacal Company Museum that was previously in the Eaton Center now resides within the confines of the Historical Museum and chronicles the history and products of a company that brought international stature to the County. The Museum is nearing completion on renovations to what will be the James S. Flanagan Research Center Building down the street from the current building. It has an anticipated opening date of early June.
