On Tuesday, March 28, 2017 the Adel Partners Chamber of Commerce held their Annual Celebration Event at the Adel Hillcrest Country Club.
Awards were presented for Business of the Year and Citizen of the Year.
2017 Business of the Year – Fareway.
This award is given to a Chamber business that has gone above and beyond in service to the community. We looked at how they have made Adel a better community along with their own growth and achievements. Our Finalists are Adel Family Fun Center, Eric Schepers State Farm Insurance, and Fareway.
The Fareway store in Adel goes above and beyond daily to serve the community. The employees are friendly and helpful. Often they are the first job of students and are flexible and accommodating with their schedules.
The store is always willing to help out with local fundraisers such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Legion members, Kiwanis to provide space. They donate often the ADM School events and programs and the Adel Food Pantry. They go above and beyond accommodating their customers with product needs. They put their own money to a family in need during the holidays.
Thank you Fareway. Help us congratulation the Fareway team.
