"Lola and I have talked many times about how blessed we are to have watched this wonderful community grow," Duane Hagadone, chairman of the Hagadone Corp., told about 300 attendees at the luncheon. "It's our pleasure to contribute back to the community. This chamber has been a part of the growth and success... We accept our award with honor."
From helping the chamber march forward in its mission to promote businesses to ensuring that children have a safe place after school, the Hagadones have given back.
The Hagadones hosted and paid for the chamber's Celebration in the Gardens fundraiser in July at their Casco Bay home on Lake Coeur d'Alene, which brought in $100,000 for the nonprofit. Full story. Brian Walker, Cda Press, Shawn Gust photo
