Serving Slabs earned Business of the Month honors for November Friday from Heart of the Rockies Chamber of Commerce.
Owners Wendy and Derrick Neikam received a heart plaque that they can display during the month.
Chamber Executive Director Lori Roberts presented the plaque and spoke about how the business earned the honor.
“You’re recognized for not only bringing a wonderful business to town and creating jobs,” Roberts said, “(but) they’ve worked very hard (and worked) with economic development to produce this wonderful company.”
Roberts said the Neikams’ volunteering with Rotary Club of Salida and their involvement in the community also earned them the honor.
“They’ve done things for the chamber, Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical (Center) Foundation, Ark-Valley Humane Society, Salida Circus, Salida Pregnancy Resource Center,” Roberts said.
“Outside of the county they’re involved with Adoption Dreams Come True and Pulmonary Hypertension Association.”
Wendy Neikam also spoke about the way they helped out animals affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
“We put something together and in three days we had over $15,000 worth of supplies that we hauled down to Texas,” she said. “I’m from the Beaumont area, so I know a lot of people who were affected down there. It meant a lot to be able to make a delivery from all the people in Salida.”
