Spencer, IA (ILCDC)–The Iowa Lakes Corridor’s Business Recognition Luncheon is just around the corner. Wednesday, November 20th will mark the Corridor’s fourth annual ceremony.

Three awards will be given during the luncheon: Small Business Excellence (fewer than 30 employees), Large Business Excellence (30 or more employees) and Entrepreneur of the Year. The Dream Big Grow Here winner will also be announced during this time. Currently, the Corridor is seeking nominations for these awards.
