On May 5th I went to an Enterprise Bank Business Excellence awards night at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. Top shelf affair, starting with the greeting lines made up of numerous bank employees lining the pathway as you walk up to the building and thanking us for coming. It was like a movie star stepping out of a limo and walking into the Academy Awards with loads of people lined up on the sides. Inside there were numerous food tables with all kinds of great food including a raw bar with incredibly good cherry-stone clams, oysters, and shrimp. Open bar as well. Since Enterprise Bank is a sponsor of the MVVF, and one of their VPs is on the Board of Directors they gave us some tickets to attend.
Little did I know that one of the finalists for “Business of the Year” was Barbara’s very own Countryside Veterinary Hospital!!! Out of five or so finalists, they WON the award!
That was an unexpected surprise. The planned highlight of the evening was the guest speaker – Tedy Bruschi
