It was an honor to accept the award for POWER as Organization of the Year, but the real honor goes to all the volunteers over the years who have made the projects possible.
A special thank you to Pat Holbert, Dick Berry, Ray Burge and Doug Patrick for all the years they spent feeding the fish; without their dedication to take control of the feeding for years, POWER could not have accomplished that.
Also, thanks to the Bureau of Reclamation here in Grand Coulee & Ephrata for all their help and cooperation — very much appreciated.
A special note is for Bill Brashears and Reg Morgan for their foresight in starting POWER in 1986, one of the very first net pen operations in Washington, and one of the most successful, with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife stating it is a first-class operation.
