Whispering Pines Fire Chief Mark Essary presents Carol Herrick with two awards for her "District Chatter" column that runs in the Payson Roundup.
When Whispering Pines Fire District held its awards ceremony this past month, the board, firefighters and other volunteers showed their appreciation to Carol Herrick for her monthly column in the Payson Roundup.
She was awarded a "District Chatter" plaque and a "Chatter Box Award" certificate.
Herrick initiated the column in October 2005 after a fire board member wondered if it would be possible to start a column in the paper. Herrick volunteered and contacted the paper.
The column covers news in Whispering Pines Fire District, which includes Geronimo Estates, Elusive Acres, Camp Geronimo, Rim Trail, Washington Park and Whispering Pines.
To submit material for "District Chatter," e-mail Herrick at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (928) 474-5279.
