The headwaters Builders Association recently announced their 2012 Members of the year, with several local recipients.
Back in October the top candidates were asked to provide additional information regarding their business and community service, with a committee then choosing Member and Associate Member of the year, plus two “shining stars of the association.”
Receiving the Associate of the year award was KC Ahles of Tomahawk Lumber company. He was noted for his community work including Boy Scouts, fundraising for Susan G Komen, and his work with the Association.
The 2012 Builder Member of the Year went to Randy Nilsson of Great Lakes Carpentry in Mercer.
In addition, the committee awarded two “Shining Stars” recognizing members who exemplify the spirit of the association and dedication to both their business and community. Receiving those awards were Mike Winter of Winter Plewa, Inc. in Rhinelander and Jim Van Strydonk of Van Strydonk Construction in Tomahawk.
The awards were presented at the Headwaters Builders Association annual Christmas party.
