Hanover’s Perspective

Legacy Businesses to Be Recognized at Hanover Business Appreciation Event

The month of May, by proclamation of the Office of the Virginia Governor, is Business Appreciation Month in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

In observance, this year’s Hanover County Business Appreciation Event, co-hosted by Hanover County Economic Development and Hanover Chamber of Commerce, is enhancing the celebration with a special awards program.  Twenty-five businesses are being recognized for operating in the county for 50 years or more and five businesses with 100+ years.  Each business will be presented a Legacy Business plaque by their respective district Supervisor.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we are fortunate in Hanover County to be able to recognize 30 businesses this year which have been here for 50 years or more.  Weathering many economic ups and downs over the generations, the resilience of our Legacy Businesses is a testament to their leadership and affirms Hanover County as a great place to do business.” – E. Linwood Thomas IV, Director of Hanover County Economic Development
