Economic organization to recognize local businesses

MARQUETTE — Operation Action U.P. is seeking nominees for their annual Operation Action Excellence awards.

The awards recognize up to five outstanding businesses that have contributed to the economic well–being of the Upper Peninsula.

Operation Action U.P Co–Chair Tawni Ferrarini said, “We will be recognizing key businesses for their excellence and we are looking for people in the community and in the larger Upper Peninsula community to nominate businesses that have contributed to the overall economic well–being of the county’s and the regional whole.”

Award winners will have the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony in January and present their business to the board.

“We have incredible opportunities in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and we need to celebrate what we are doing, how we are moving through our challenges, and identify growth opportunities in the future. Not only for our young people, but for the people we find in the ages of 45 to 60, as well as some people who are seniors and are choosing to retire here.”

The chance to submit nominations has been extended until December 14th. If you would like to nominate a business, we have that information setup for you by following this link.
