A pair of long-time Swift Current businesses were rewarded by the Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce this past week.

The Swift Current Broncos were named the recipients of the 2022 Hall of Fame Inductee Award on Wednesday afternoon. The WHL club has been a member of the chamber since 1991.

"The SC Bronco’s contribute much to our community and region," the Chamber said in an email. "Games provide an opportunity for friends and family to connect, and bring new visitors to Swift Current which helps our local economy and tourism industry."

The second southwest business to earn an accolade was the Pioneer Co-Op netting the 2022 Member Business of the Year Award. They've been a member of the Chamber since pre-1962.

"This organization is a cornerstone of Swift Current and southwest Saskatchewan, congratulations to the entire team," the Chamber said. "Pioneer Co-Op is a proud supporter of our community, by way of volunteerism, donations, event support, and employing hundreds of our residents." 

Both organizations will receive their hardware during the 24th annual SCBEX Awards Gala on October 28 at the Living Sky Casino.

Before that event, the three finalists for all the remaining awards will be named on October 6 during the Big Reveal at Great Plains College starting at 5 p.m.
