FORMER VIKING RESIDENT WINS MUNRO AWARD
Randy Hollar, formerly of Viking, says when he was handed the Bev Munro Award at a performance in Sherwood Park Jan. 25, his first thought was to run and put the plaque in his car, “before they changed their minds.”
Hollar, who now lives in Chipman, said he was totally caught off guard when he was called to accept the award.
“There are always six people nominated and nobody, not even Bev knows who the winner is until just before he makes the presentation.
“I was in the back getting dressed to go on stage when I was told that I had won the award and I was needed on stage. I thought everybody was just kidding. I said, ‘No’ but they insisted and, low and behold, Bev was waiting on the stage for me. It just caught me off guard,” he said.
