Outstanding Board Member winners

Mike Cramond, during his term on the Board of Directors, felt that outstanding board members should be recognized in a special way. In 1974 and 1975, he presented four board members with jade bolo ties as a memento of service to OWAA.

The board continued the bolo tradition until 1985. A plaque is now presented. Fellow board members select recipients.
