Area people honored for volunteer service
Betty Fuller of Cooper Landing and Allan B. Crawford of Homer each received a John Campanius Holm Award, last week from the National Weather Service.
The award, named for a Lutheran minister who was the first person known to have taken systematic weather observations in the American colonies, is one of the most prestigious awards the weather service offers.
Fuller and Crawford are part of the service's Cooperative Weather Observer Program, a nationwide network of 11,000 volunteers who record temperature and precipitation each day for the nation's weather and climate archive.
Fuller has been a volunteer for 30 years and Crawford has participated for 25 years. The awards were two of 27 offered nationally this year.
