The Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission and the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce had the pleasure of honoring Carlos Creek Winery as the 2016 Business and Industrial Appreciation Day recipient. As we’re wrapping up this year’s event we can’t help but feel pride at having our third highest attendance with 390 community members showing their congratulations and support for Carlos Creek Winery. It really shows how much Carlos Creek Winery is involved in the community and what an excellent job they have done with helping everyone fall in love with their winery.
Since 1984, an outstanding Alexandria area business or organization has been selected as the BIAD recipient and has been honored for their significant contribution to the social and economic vitality of the Douglas County region through creation of jobs, business investment, and community development efforts and Carlos Creek Winery is no exception. This celebration has been recognized as one of the largest and longest standing annual events of its type in greater Minnesota with attendance from regional citizens, business persons, and government officials from the area. We can’t begin to express our appreciation for all that Carlos Creek Winery does for our community…but we do want to say thank you…and we are so glad you are a part of what makes our area a great place to live and work.
Also, we wanted to say thank you to all of the wonderful people and businesses that helped and contributed to this year’s event…without all of you we wouldn’t be able to honor such a deserving business every year!
