YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce announced the winner of the Ted Robertson Community Service Award this morning. Bob Brown, long time Yakima resident and owner of Wray's Food and Drug is this year's recipient. Brown was born in Yakima in 1942 and has been a part of many committees and boards, working to make Yakima a better place to live.
"I think it's very much of an honor to be recognized for this award," Brown said. "It's a very prestigious award in Yakima and I was very surprised when I was selected."
Brown says he works so hard because he knows Yakima is a great place and he says he wants the younger generations to feel the same way.
