Best of Pine Island ballots counted, tallied

By PAULETTE LeBLANC - | May 5, 2021


It’s that time of year again when the “Best of Pine Island” ballots have been turned in and counted. Thanks to everyone who voted for their Pine Island favorites and congratulations to those businesses and service people who topped the list of so many, that you were named the “Best Of Pine Island.”

Due to COVID-19, there will not be an official lunch or awards ceremony this year to announce the winners. The winners in each category will receive a banner and plaque signifying their selection as the 2021 “Best OF’ honor.

If you were voted number one in your category and no one has contacted you, please call Charlene at the Eagle office 239-283-0020 so that she can make sure you receive your banner and plaque.
