AED names Bonnesen Plumbing as its business of the year

Aurelia Economic Development named Bonnesen Plumbing as its business of the year for their commitment and economic contribution to the community of Aurelia during the Cherokee Area Economic Development banquet Feb. 6. Bruce Bonnesen, owner of Bonnesen Plumbing, started his first plumbing job at the age of 13 with Jeff Bowen. He started working full time in January 1985 at 17 years old (graduating high school at mid-term.) 
Plumbing, pump work, directional drilling and grave digging are just a few of the services they provide. Bonnesen bought the plumbing business from Bowen and became the sole owner of Bonnesen Plumbing in March 2000. He employs his two sons Douglas and Kurtis, both of Aurelia.
