Best of the Best are in

Winners of the Mail Tribune’s annual Best of the Best competition were announced at a banquet Saturday night at Rogue Valley Country Club.

The competition allows Mail Tribune readers to vote for their favorite businesses and organizations in 99 categories.

Plaques were handed out Saturday to first-place winners at the banquet, which was back for the first time since 2019, due to pandemic restrictions. Live entertainment was provided by comedian Carl Moore and local band The Brothers Reed.

The printed Best of the Best publication will be mailed to subscribers this week, and an online version of the magazine — which contains a complete list all of those honored — can be seen immediately at MailTribune.com.
