Wenatchee Church Presents the 12th Annual Brody Award

The Wenatchee Church presented its 12th annual Brody award to Carl and Betty Campbell at its church service on Oct. 23, 2004.

The Campbells have given so much to our community in their graceful, humble way. They have received other awards and have been recognized for their generosity outside of our community as well. But this year the Wenatchee Church wanted to thank and honor them with the Brody award for their lifetime achievements in community service.

Carl takes great pleasure in gardening and still enjoys singing. He has blessed our church with his deep rich voice on many occasions. You will find Betty working in her office surrounded by pictures of their two children, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Betty worked for several years in the community health food store and still volunteers in the cradle roll.

The original Brody award was given in 1992 to Elmer and Lila Brody. It was called the "Perpetual Brody Award" because of the lifelong commitment Elmer and Lila Brody made to the Wenatchee community through the Adventist Community Service center. Awards have been received by persons such as Earl Tilly, Wenatchee mayor, and Elizabeth Rogers, who recently passed away at the age of 102. All those who have received the award have made a difference in the Wenatchee community.

The Brody award recognizes individuals who have made an impact on their church and community. Its presentation always coincides with the national "Make a Difference Day."
