Honoring Kirk Works

While attending the 2019 Indiana State Festival Association convention held in Indianapolis this past weekend, January 4th-6th, Swiss Wine Festival board members Suzanne Rayls, Andy Truitt, and Tom Dawson were presented with an inaugural award in honor of Kirk Works longtime President of the Swiss Wine Festival who also was an important member of the Indiana State Festival Association who passed away in March of last year. The award was presented at the intermission of the ISFA’s scholarship pageant, and was created in Works’ memory and honor in appreciation for his dedication to the festival industry. A plaque was awarded to the Swiss Wine Festival board, but another one will be made with Work’s picture; and new recipient names will be added every year. The inaugural plaque reads: “ISFA/Kirk Works Memorial Hall of Fame Award; Presented to Kirk Works In Appreciation of Your Dedication To The Festival Industry, 2019”.
