Chamber Business of the Quarter Awarded to
JJ's Computer Repair
2nd Quarter, 2005
The award for Woodland Chamber of Commerce, Business of the 2nd Quarter 2005, goes to JJ's Computer Repair (aka John J Burke). This business has been in Downtown Woodland since 1997.
When you are the sole proprietor of a business, everything depends on you. Success, reputation, community presence and of course, the bottom line.
It is hard to separate the business from the man and visa versa. "JJ" serves as Woodland City Councilman, Grange Master, President of Woodland Planter's Days, Chairman of Woodland Harvest Festival. In addition, an active member of Downtown Woodland Revitalization, Woodland Lions Club, Woodland Chamber of Commerce, and MARS. Any of these requires a commitment of time, energy and resources.
When your business sponsors the Woodland Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament, gives prizes for Woodland Harvest Festival, Woodland Easter Egg Hunt or one of the many other community events, when you give of your time, services, products it all comes directly from you. There is no corporate structure, no employees to send as volunteers. It is all you.
This is a well deserved award to a person whom is a fine example of the "little" guy that can make a big difference.
