Since 1981, the Pioneer Logger Award has been bestowed on a usually reluctant recipient. Initially, it was given to those that were actually pioneers. With the pioneers now gone, the award is given in their memory. The award represents a person that always worked harder than the next person, did the very best job they could do, and never ever wanted to be recognized, because "they were just doing their job."
