The County of Brant celebrated the annual Salute to Brant Business event on Thursday, September 21, 2023.
“It was a wonderful evening of celebrating our business community,” said Zach Gable, Director of Economic Development and Tourism. “We were also excited to be able to showcase the new TF Warren Group Cainsville Community Centre which has been a great addition to this area of the County.”
