Everyone wants to be recognized from time to time. Whether it is a new business making a move into a community, perhaps it’s another business that does good towards others. Whatever the case may be a recognition certificate is always nice to receive.
Recently two such groups received such recognition and they were given certificates by dignitaries that not only represent the city/town they are in but those who represent the region they reign from. One of those was Local First Utah in Ogden, Utah.
Local First Utah is a non-profit organization that tries to strengthen communities and local economies by promoting, preserving and protecting local, independently owned businesses. Local First knows how important it is to not only have commercial retailers, but mom and pop places as well. Those mom and pop businesses can be seen as the backbone to the community and help to stimulate the local economy.
Recently the group was recognized before the Ogden city council in Ogden, Utah. The group was recognized for their efforts at promoting local businesses, but the recognition had the goal of trying to encourage locals to shop local.
Now, this recognition could have just been done with a simple certificate to Local First Utah, but the city council and others took it a step further. The certificate was also placed inside one of the Presenta Plaque plaque kits. It not only preserves the certificate but it makes it easier to display and proudly show off for this group. Although Local First Utah does a lot of their work without any type of recognition, it is nice for them to be celebrated for all that they do in this manner.
This was not the only time the city council there in Ogden used a Presenta Plaque kit to help recognize someone. During another city council meeting one of our kits was used to house the certificate to recognize and honor the Honorary Mayor of Christmas Village and proclaim it Jo Packham Day. The event and the addition of a plaque with the certificate declaring it a special day make for a memorable event for the person receiving it, such as in the case of Jo Packham.
These gestures are not hard to accomplish and Presenta Plaque makes it so easy for people to do. The kits come in stylish colors and types of materials. They take the certificates and upgrade them into a whole new level. Those receiving the awards or recognitions are already touched by the gesture, it just brings it up a notch for them. So if you are getting ready to give someone a special ‘thank you’ perhaps upgrading it with a Presenta Plaque kit is the way to go.
