On behalf of the entire LaFontaine Automotive Group, I’m pleased to announce that our own Karla Griscom has been named the 2015 Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the Year.
This isn’t the first time Karla has been recognized by the Hartland Chamber for being outstanding. In 2014, Karla was recognized as the Member of the Year. Now that honor will stand beside her award for being the Ambassador of the Year.
When I asked Karla how it felt to win this award she said,
Winning Ambassador of the Year at the Hartland Chamber is such an honor. It’s nice to be recognized for my time and efforts over the past year. I’m so fortunate to work for the LaFontaine Automotive Group who understands giving back to our community and helping others.
Karla truly embodies what the LaFontaine Family Deal is all about. It’s more than just a slogan. It’s about being useful to the communities that we live and work in. It’s about being a part of something so much bigger than ourselves.
Karla goes above and beyond to connect with local businesses and residents, and we couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishments.
