Presents Distinguished Small Business Proclamation To D&S
On February 23, State Senator John Eklund visited D&S Automotive Collision & Restyling to present the 2015 Western Willoughby Lake County Chamber of Commerce (WWLCCC) “Distinguished Small Business Award” to D&S owner, Carmen Paterniti.
Each year, the WWLCCC presents the Distinguished Small Business Award to the local business who goes above and beyond in the areas of accomplishments, leadership, and civic involvement.
A resident of Chardon, Senator Eklund visited the Tyler Boulevard collision center to tour the facility, greet employees, and present Mr. Paterniti with an official proclamation for the award. D&S Automotive was first honored as Distinguished Small Business in January at the WWLCCC Annual Awards Luncheon.
Senator Eklund congratulated Mr. Paterniti and thanked him for his hard work and dedication to both the local economy and the wellbeing of the community.
“Employing families and helping people get ahead in life, that’s what it’s all about.” Senator Eklund said. “Keep up the good work.”
