Avista Operations Group to be Honored at Deer Park Settlers Event

Avista Utilities Operations Supervisor Frank Binder and his crew will be honored with the “Community Service” trophy at the 2010 Settlers Parade on July 24, 2010, in Deer Park, Wash. Crew members are Keith Hunter, Dana Hill, Sven Holracher, Pat St. Amand and Jason Hauger.


“We are proud of Frank’s years of service with Avista, including his 10 years in the Deer Park operations. We congratulate him and his crew on this great recognition,” said Steve Trabun, regional business manager for Avista’s northeast Washington service territory. “Community service is a strong value at Avista, and we are pleased to support Frank and his team in enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of this community.”


Binder and his crew have been hanging banners and holiday lights along the central Deer Park streets for many years as a service to the city. This year, Binder has undertaken an effort to produce new, weather-tolerant banners for Settlers Days, partnering with the art students in Deer Park Middle School. Much of the work is done after work or on weekends.


“Bringing people together to celebrate our community’s events and citizens is an important part of working and living here in Deer Park. We enjoy playing a role in keeping the hometown feeling alive and supporting the civic activities of our great city,” said Binder.
