The Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce recently selected Palm Cleaning to receive its 2013 “Business of the Year” award, and Debby Phillips as its 2013 “Volunteer of the Year.”

Each year the chamber asks its membership for nominations for the two awards. Nominations are reviewed by the Chamber’s Board of Directors and award recipients are selected by a majority vote.

Volunteer of the Year awards are intended for individuals who, during the past year, have given back to the community in their time, energy and resources “above and beyond the call of duty” and regardless of their employment responsibilities. 

Phillips “has far exceeded these parameters, not only this year, but notably in previous years for as long as her acquaintances can remember,” the chamber said in a press release.

Palm Cleaning was praised for “quick response to businesses and residences during last winter’s storm flooding. In some cases Andrew Myer and his crew were on site within minutes of being called by homeowners and business owners.” 

Business of the Year Award winners such as Palm Cleaning are businesses that are not only successful, but have also been actively involved in the community during  the past year, emulating the Chamber’s mission “ ... of helping to create and maintain a viable economy that provides all citizens with a high quality of life.”

Previous recipients of the Business of the Year include Best Western Brookings Inn, The Book Dock, Chetco Federal Credit Union, Kerr’s Ace Hardware, Best Western Beachfront Inn, KURY Radio, CAL-OR Insurance Specialists, Inc., Slugs ‘N’ Stones ‘N’ Ice Cream Cones and South Coast Humane Society.
