Westie Awards - 2015

Westie Awards 2015, Charleston, S.C.
Telling someone "not to have a cow" might not normally sound like a positive thing but in this case winning a cow is the goal! The Coburg Cow sign is the symbol of the West Ashley neighborhood and our own newspaper West Of has used the symbol for the annual Westie Awards honoring people who make a difference in this part of town.

This year's award program was held at the new dessert/coffee cafe Gala Desserts and they laid out a delicious spread of food. As a previous cow trophy recipient, I nominated a few worthy souls this time and was proud as punch to see them honored. Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Eugene Geer, my volunteers Charles Williamon, John Hogg and all the other recipients of this year's award. Congratulations folks!

John Hogg, Dr. Gene Geer, Charles Williamon, Lorne Chambers

That sounds like a good award!

John Hogg won a cow? I hope the other contestants didn't beef about that.

Hahah! I missed that entirely. Thanks for the smile.

Sometimes the local recognition means even more, doesn't it?
