2019 Community Award Honorees
The Guardian Award recognizes a first responder (law enforcement, firefighter, paramedic/EMT or 911 dispatcher) and their fearless and unselfish service in helping keep our community safe. The award was presented to Terry Plumb, a battalion chief with Southern Stone County Fire Protection District. While traveling, Mr. Plumb witnessed an automobile crash, stopped and pulled the driver from the vehicle, which had erupted in flames.
Business of the Year
The honoree for Business of the Year was Tanco II Lumber Company in Branson West, and owners John and Carla Stauffer were on hand to receive the award. The Business of the Year is presented to a business in the Table Rock Lake area that has demonstrated outstanding customer service, a high-quality product or service, and a strong commitment to the community. Tanco II Lumber is a family-run business that built a new location this year in Branson West, adding 30 new jobs and more than tripling its space.
