Anderson Funeral Home has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Business & Industrial Appreciation Day award by the Boards of Directors of the Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission and Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Business & Industrial Appreciation Day (BIAD) event has honored a Douglas County company each year since 1984, and is recognized as one of the largest and longest standing annual events of its type in greater Minnesota. Annually, one company from the region is selected as the BIAD recipient based upon the following factors:
- Growth in number of employees; the impact of the business on the job market
- Increase in sales and/or unit volume; an indication of continued growth
- Capital Investment; an indication of commitment by the business to increase community capacity
- Community Contributions; evidence of the business’s investment of time, skills, and resources to assist in community oriented projects
This event will be a celebration of the success, growth, and impact of Anderson Funeral Home not only in our local area but statewide as well. The luncheon is an opportunity to spotlight the organization with a company video and the presentation of formal resolutions of congratulations by local leaders.
