Ward 2 Councillor Tony Carella nominated Mr. Lazenkas for the award.


"Mr. Lazenkas and a partner took over the barbershop in 1969, which originally opened in 1935," said Councillor Carella. "A number of businesses pre-dated Mr. Lazenkas' arrival in Woodbridge; however, none of them can compete with his track record in terms of local service."
