103rd William Pynchon awards held at the Log Cabin

Hampden County

Four western Massachusetts residents received the William Pynchon Award Thursday night for their dedication to their community.

The ad-Club of Western Massachusetts recognized Pynchon recipients  Robert McCarroll and Ronald  Weiss, who was involved in the creation of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.

Also honored; early literacy advocate Sally Fuller, and Craig Carr, one of the original incorporators of Springfield’s Ronald McDonald House.

“I’ve had such a good time doing all of this it seems crazy to be rewarded for it,” said Craig Carr.

Sally Fuller said, “It’s been pretty cool. It’s been a wonderful journey I would say to be able to do things I love and try to make things better for people.”

Thursday night’s celebration at the Log Cabin in Holyoke marked the 103rd presentation of the  Pynchon medal for distinguished service to the community.

The award is named for William Pynchon, the founder of Springfield.
