2017 SHANAHAN AWARD - MICHEL CARTER
by Adam Mihlstin
Today, the University District Club hosted Rotary First Harvest’s 2017 Shanahan Awards. This year 3 awards were given. The first was presented to Kris and Erick Ringsrud. The Ringsruds have an apple orchard in Cashmere and have generously donated thousands of pounds of apples to RFH. The second award was presented to Ed Taylor of Taylor Driving School. TDS has been crisscrossing the state, hauling over 250,000 lbs. of produce.
The third award was presented to the Carter Family in memory of Michel Carter. There was a tribute video (CLICK HERE) presented then Adam Mihlstin and Howard Johnson provided comments about Michel, BBRC, Rotary and RFH. Rachel and Brian Carter were in attendance to receive the Shanahan Award – a beautiful crystal apple etched with Michel’s name and a fitting tribute to his many contributions to RFH.
