Chamber award winners to be honored June 26

The North Clackamas County Chamber of Commerce will honor three exceptional business people and one outstanding company as part of its annual Awards and Installation Dinner later this month.

The following are the three major award winners. However, the Ron Bly Volunteer of the Year is secret, so you must attend the event to find out who wins:

Business Person of the Year

David Golobay of Sun Glow Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning has been an active chamber member for several years and holds a seat on its executive board. Golobay is involved in many community projects and business associations in both Clackamas and Multnomah counties. He’s extremely active in the city of Happy Valley, as well as with its schools, working hard to help that community grow and thrive.

Business of the Year

General Distributors Inc. is being recognized for its active involvement in the community. This organization has been in business since 1933 and has provided jobs and community support for decades. Its community involvement includes working as a Willamette RiverKeeper, supporting Oregon Impact, as well as charity golf tournaments, and the Helping Hands Committee. Through employee and matching company donations, the company supports the community in dozens of ways.

Irwin Adams Lifetime Achievement Award

Punky Scott, owner of The Bomber Restaurant & Catering, has been a community icon, much like the B-17 bomber airplane parked on Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard. Scott has been instrumental in supporting many organizations and charitable events over her lifetime. When asked to take on projects and programs in her community, to help make this a better place to live and do business, you will find her devoting all her energy. Holding fast to the memory of her father and other war veterans in the community, she is passing on their legacy so it will never be forgotten who is responsible for the freedoms enjoyed today.

The business community is invited to honor the award winners at the annual Awards and Installation Dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at Gray Gables Estate, 3009 S.E. Chestnut St.

Registration is available online at yourchamber.com or by calling 503-654-7777.
