Secretary of State Announces Vermont’s
Vermont’s Oldest Businesses Recognized at
Montpelier. Today, Vermont’s 24 oldest businesses will be recognized at an awards ceremony to be held from 4-7 p.m. at the Billings Student Center on the UVM campus. The Vermont Centennial Business Awards recognize businesses that have operated in Vermont for at least 100 years. This is a joint project of the Office of the Secretary of State, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Business Magazine. Special guests include Governor Jim Douglas and UVM President Daniel Fogel.
Vermont’s centennial businesses will be presented with a plaque at an awards ceremony and their names will be engraved on a permanent marker recognizing Vermont’s oldest businesses.
"It is important to recognize Vermont’s businesses for their longevity,” said Secretary Markowitz. “It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to keep a business active for 100 years.” Markowitz said, “The Vermont Centennial Business award acknowledges Vermont’s oldest businesses for enriching our economic heritage. We also hope that this program will deepen our understanding of how Vermont’s businesses have enhanced our community life during the last hundred years.”
According to the Secretary of State’s office, any business that has been in operation in Vermont for 100 years or more may participate in this awards program.
