The actual festival may be in the summer, but the National Cherry Festival workers are being awarded for their hard work.

They received awards at the Cherry Marketing Institute luncheon, bringing attention to their dedication to the National Cherry Festival.

Norman Veliquette and Marjory Mcpherson received the "Very Cherry Promotion" award, while Mary and Whitney Lyon received a Lifetime Achievement award.

These awards are a great way of recognizing the people behind such a great festival.
