Celebrating 20 years

F

or the 20th consecutive year, the advertising department of Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette is proud to present the readers’ choices for the best eateries, shops and services on the North Olympic Peninsula. Readers responded to an online promotional survey choosing the places where they go for both business and pleasure. Unscientific in nature, the survey is designed to be fun and give readers a chance to cite the local businesses they deem to be the best on the Peninsula. This year’s winners again demonstrate a common theme that contributes to their success; the winning businesses have distinctive personalities and offer products and services that set them apart from the rest. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists. And thanks to all our readers who participated in the survey.

TO OUR READERS FOR VOTING Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum readers: Thank you for helping us determine the BEST of the Peninsula each year. By casting your votes, you tell business owners how much you appreciate them and in return, businesses get the word out that they are “doing it right.” Each year, Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum

sponsor a website where readers can log in and cast their votes in nearly 100 categories. From “Best Customer Service” to “Best Milkshake,” businesses in Clallam and Jefferson counties get to hear from you. If you know a business but don’t see their name in the category you want them nominated for, simply use the “write-in” option. After reader’s votes are tallied, the winning businesses are announced. Those with the most votes in a

category are named 1st Place Best Of for their County. Those that received second or third place are named “Finalist,” meaning that although they were not the winner of their category, they received many votes from the readers, indicating they are doing a wonderful job in our community. Voting takes place in mid-July each year, so look for announcements about the 2016 voting in the following months!

The gratitude I feel for this recognition is overwhelming. To my fellow JACE Realtors, I could not, I would not want to work anywhere else, and I thank you for making every day an adventure in growth, trust, professionalism, and service. Thank you for the loyalty and camaraderie within the walls of our ofďŹ ces; my career holds great meaning every single day, and for that I am inďŹ nitely grateful. A most heartfelt thanks to the clients, neighbors, friends, and colleagues who have shown faith and trust in me as a Realtor, educator, volunteer, neighbor, and friend. Without question, I must offer a very special thank you to every person who has loved and supported my company, my family, and me throughout my career but most especially since the passing of my husband Jace. I always knew Jace was beloved. I believe we all knew that and, thanks to the kindness and support of so many, I know without doubt how deeply the name Jace is tied to this community. Thank you for the privilege of allowing me to serve you. ~ Eileen Schmitz
