Love the Way you Get Started – Winners!


I am very pleased to announce our first 2 winners with our “Love the Way You Get Started” project!  Louise MacDonald, owner of Joyful Sounds Music Studio in Fall River, NS, is our first winner.  Louise started her business in May, 2011.  She believes that every child is musical, that music nurtures a child’s development, and that every child should experience the joy fun and learning that music brings to life.  Congratulations Louise!

Our second winner is Forerunner Research of Dartmouth.  Owned by Gordon McArthur, David Risk and Nick Nickerson, Forerunner has been in operation since June 2011.  Forerunner is a scientific instrumentation and services company. Their core offering is a proprietary soil gas meter that makes it possible to measure the rate of emission of gases continuously, and with considerable savings in comparison to their competitors.  Congratulations to Gordon and his team!

Each winner in the “Love the Way you Get Started”  project wins a combination of office furniture, office equipment and mentoring services valued up to $10,000.
