Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud
Mesa Meadows Land Company and Patrick Foss for receiving the Greater
Golden Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award.
This award is given to an outstanding Chamber of Commerce business member who contributed substantially to the Chamber of Commerce and the community.
Henry Foss and his wife Dorothy, moved to Golden to open up Foss Drug in 1913. Henry's wish was to keep Foss Drug running as a legacy for his son. The Foss Drug Store, also known as The Foss General Store, closed its doors in 2007.
In the summer of 2013 a celebration was held to celebrate the 100th year of the Foss Building. The totally renovated facility is now the home to 12 small businesses. The building, now known as the Mesa Meadows Land Company, is still owned by the Foss family.
``We are still here, still pitching for Golden and still doing all we can to keep the retail district strong down here,'' says Patrick Foss, owner of Mesa Meadows Land Company. ``Our intention is to keep this going as long as we can be a vital part of Golden''.
I extend my deepest congratulations to Mesa Meadows Land Company and Patrick Foss for this well deserved recognition by the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce. Thank you for your continued commitment to the Golden community.
