New Richmond's biggest booster nabs honor
When the winner of the 2012 Citizen of the Year award was announced, a loud cheer erupted in the upstairs banquet room of Brady's Brewhouse in downtown New Richmond.
Vernon Conrad was the recipient of this year's honor. In previous years, the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce and the New Richmond News selected and honored two separate Citizens of the Year. This year the two organizations combined their efforts to choose one honoree.
