Last week the Optimist hosted its annual Readers' Choice Awards.
For the 15th year, this special edition honours and recognizes the businesses and individuals chosen the best in their category by Optimist readers.
Ballots appeared in the paper in the spring and readers were asked to vote for their favourite in each category. The business or individual receiving the most votes was declared the "Readers' Choice."
This contest showed there are a large number of businesses doing a great job in Ladner and Tsawwassen, evidenced by the fact their loyal customers took the time to enter their names on the ballot.
This year we're featuring those nine businesses that have been a readers' favourite every year since the program began.
For more on the contest and a list of the winners see pages 17-40.
