ORION November 13, 2012 -- Hillcrest Resort has been selected for the 2012 Best of Orion Award in the Swimming Pools category by the Orion Award Program.

Each year, the Orion Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category.

These exceptional companies help make the Orion area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2012 Orion Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Orion Award Program and data provided by third parties.
