The Trail & District Chamber of Commerce takes great pride in the accomplishments of our members and the local business community we serve. That’s why we’re so pleased to host our Business Excellence Awards each year to recognize businesses large and small in the Trail and District area

An Evening of Excellence!
The 5th Annual Business Excellence Awards Gala was held at the The Colombo Lodge in Trail on October 19, 2019. We enjoyed celebrating with another sold out crowd of local business owners and community stakeholders in 2019; it was an evening of celebration, great food, entertainment and laughter!
