Owners, and sisters, Pat Silveria and Willa Jones accepted the award on behalf of all the young women who have worked for the business in the past, work for it now and will work for it in the future.

The award was presented to Silveria on Sept. 30 by chamber Executive Director Les Cohen, board chair Ken Bryan and past chair Pat Piper.
