2017 Thunderbird Awards

Every year, the Bremerton Chamber honors leaders in our community with the Thunderbird, or Hyas Tyee awards.  The past-presidents of the Chamber come up with suggestions for the award, and the Board of Directors votes to approve the list.  In a community rich with volunteers and leaders, the challenge is not in finding enough people to honor, but to pare the list down to only 4 or 5 honorees.

This year was no exception, and the honorees are as follows: Captain Howard Markle Commanding Officer Puget Sound Shipyard, Rick Tift Executive Director Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Mike Stevens, Kitsap Sun (Retired) and Stacy Dore’ Kitsap Humane Society.

The Awards Ceremony will be held at the Kitsap golf and County Club  on Thursday April 20 at 6:00 PM. Register here.
