Washington Valley. This years recipients of the ‘White Mountains Treasure's Award' are Bernadine ‘Benny' Jesseman and Bobbi Steele-Marotta. The MWVEC will present their ‘Bob Morrell Award,' established in honor of the late Bob Morrell, to Terry O'Brien of the Red Parka Steakhouse & Pub in addition to announcing the recipients of their ‘Board Member of the Year' and ‘Volunteer of the Year' awards.
