The 2018 Awards Banquet was Standing Room Only!

Carriage Lane Reception House, Saturday, November 10, 2018

Each year the president of the RCHS is tasked with selecting only five volunteers for recognition.  I use the word ‘tasked’ because choosing ONLY five volunteers is a tough, tough task.

This year’s recipients were:

Award of Appreciation – Russell & Vicki Norton
Cannonsburgh Award – Mr. Murfreesboro, Bill Wilson
Matheny Award – Bobby Turman
Ragland Award – Johnnie & Joy Leonard
Lifetime Achievement Award – Dr. E.C. Tolbert
