PSE honored at Chamber dinner


Attendees of the BI Chamber dinner take their seats at the event

Annual BI Chamber of Commerce 2018 Dinner

On March 3, PSE was honored with the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce large business of the year award.

The event, hosted at the Wing Point Golf & Country Club, was an evening of good food, conversation and many awards. All award winners are listed below.

According to Rex Oliver, Chamber president and CEO, “PSE has shown dedication to safe, sustainable energy and the positive effect it is sure to have on our local communities. They also are a primary partner in the Island’s disaster preparedness efforts and pioneered the HORSE recycling program at the Harbour Public House and now at Pleasant Beach Village."

A special moment in the evening came with the awarding of the posthumous award “In Memoriam”. It was created for the late Frank Buxton, long-time Grand Old 4th parade announcer and co-founder of the Buxton-Ellis Most Humorous Parade Entry prize.

Congratulations to all of those nominated!
