Terrace Totem Ford receives award

The Golden Shovel Award presented by Ford of Canada executive

TERRACE TOTEM Ford has been presented an award by Ford of Canada for its recent renovation.

The Golden Shovel Award was presented by a Ford of Canada executive at a May 15 reception held at the dealership.

“This is truly spectacular,” said Ford of Canada western region general manager Gerald Wood of the renovations which feature a new showroom area.

“It’s important to Ford of Canada that facilities complement the product line.”

Wood also noted the multi-generational ownership of Terrace Totem Ford, saying Ford itself now has the fifth generation of the founding Ford family involved in its affairs.

Dealer partner Kevin Kennedy emphasized the family history of the dealership.

“It is our parents’ vision that created this,” he told those at the reception.

“It began with 35 people and now we have quite a few more than that.”

The other partners in the dealership are Shane deJong and Mitch Shinde.

Ford dealerships in Kitimat and in Prince Rupert also come under the Terrace Totem Ford umbrella.

The dealership also presented four cheques May 15 to community groups, the product of a 2012 community campaign in which those who purchased vehicles could donate $50 to one of four charities.

Relay for Life received $6,100, the REM Lee Hospital Foundation $3,275, the Terrace Churches Food Bank $7,915 and the Northern Animal Rescue Alliance $4,780.
