On Saturday May 3rd, the Los Alamos Co+op Market was selected to receive the Sonny Brown Business Award from Rotary District 5520 (New Mexico and west Texas) at the District’s Annual Conference in Albuquerque.
The Rotary Club of Los Alamos also recently honored the Co+op with its local Sonny Brown Business Award earlier this year.
The Sonny Brown Business Award, named after an El Paso Rotarian for his outstanding leadership, was established in 2005, Rotary International’s centennial year. This award recognizes businesses throughout Rotary District 5520 (New Mexico and west Texas) that exemplify the high ethical standards of Rotary. Businesses must demonstrate excellence in community involvement, employee relations, and in service or product.
Each business recognized by a local Rotary Club within District 5520 competes, by category, for the Sonny Brown Business of the Year Award for the District. Awards are given in categories based upon the number of employees a business has. In previous years, local recipients included Pet Pangaea and Daniel’s Café. This year’s local award committee was co-chaired by Deesh Narang and Gary DeRosier with assistance from Linda Hull.
