The Washington Business Improvement District honored Marian Bredin, a founding board member of WBID, and several other businesses at the group’s annual business meeting in February.

Bredin, owner of Good Impressions Printing &Mailing as well as the town newsletter, The Messenger, was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. She served on the WBID Board of Directors since its inception in 2003, but was instrumental in the formation of the organization prior to that as well. Bredin, who has held multiple Executive Board posts over the years, most recently as treasurer, retired from the board at the end of 2015. The longtime Washington resident also has been a business leader throughout Warren County, serving on various business organizations over the years.

Meanwhile, Stew's Auto Body received an award for its commitment to the community, as WBID honored the company’s donation of services, time and assistance to various Washington functions.

The organization also honored four new businesses established in Washington: ARCANA Toys & Games, Juanito's Mexican Restaurant, RE/MAX real estate, and Prudential Insurance.
