Choice Apparel’s efforts received an honourable mention.
It was terrific driving into town and seeing the effort everyone has gone to to make us feel welcome.- Dean Mumm
Andrew Palmer of the Chamber said, “it was a very, very positive program”.
“The Waratahs themselves commented that they were really impressed with the way the business community – and the community at large – got behind them coming to town,” he said.
