The McMaster Heritage Award, now in its 20th year, honors a local citizen who, through volunteerism and service, has made a positive difference in the Kenmore community. Established in 2002 by the Kenmore Heritage Society, the award bears the name of John McMaster, the man who named Kenmore on January 10th, 1901.
The first award, presented in 2002, celebrated the community service of Ralph Swanson, founder of Plywood Supply. Of the 20 awards presented to date, six recipients have been women. Among the recipients have been local business owners, teachers, a minister, and citizens dedicated to serving the community.
KHS is proud to add these two citizens to its growing roster of outstanding Kenmore citizens to be recognized and honored with these special awards.
