he Port Orchard Chamber and Shop SK First Committee are happy to present the 5th Annual Best of SK Awards! Thank you to the hundreds of community individuals who went online to vote and returned ballots. Congratulations to the hundreds and hundreds of South Kitsap Businesses, individuals and ‘places’ who were nominated and to the approximately 150 finalists! And a special thanks to the Port Orchard Independent for being our partner on this project for the last five years! We love hearing about who you like, where you like to spend your time and money and eat, and who you like to do business with. There are, of course, MANY other categories of businesses and services not represented on our ballot-- but we try to keep the categories to around 50 to keep the project manageable! South Kitsap community—you should know you have many loyal customers, friends and family who support you! As always, the Port Orchard Chamber and our shop local committee encourage you to SHOP SK First when you are spending your hard earned money. Join us in supporting our local businesses!
