On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, winners accepted the Yelm Chamber of Commerce 2013 Business of the Year award in various employee-numbers based categories at the Forum luncheon meeting’s award ceremony. Yelm Chamber Executive Director introduced the awards and Mayor Ron Harding was on hand to make the presentations and shake hands with each of the winners, followed by Chamber President Ronelle Funk adding her congratulations to the honorees, as well.
