The Washington Chamber of Commerce’s 75th annual awards ceremony and banquet last night was a little bittersweet. Two of the award recipients have passed away recently. One was Mary Ann Drain. She was recognized as Main Street’s Volunteer of the Year. Another departed award winner was Mary Jo Hays. Her and her husband Jon were recognized as the Chamber’s Citizens of the Year. As for the sweet part of last night’s events: the Washington Economic Development Group announced the school district would be receiving a one million dollar grant from Iowa Office of Energy Independence to install a geothermal heating and cooling at Stewart Elementary.
