An honored Englewood tradition returns. The Secret Society of Smoked Mullets will reveal the 2023 winners for this year’s Smoked Mullet Award and the Englewood Legends’ Award on May 26th, at Boca Royale Golf & Country Club located at 1601 Englewood Road.
The Secret Society of Smoked Mullets was started in 1996 by then Chamber President Nita (Edmondson) Cole. “The intention is to honor people from the past who helped create the Englewood we have today-people who probably never have been recognized with an award for their hard work and dedication,” explains Nita Cole. Past Smoke Mullet Award winners include: Dr. John Flower, Mac Horton, Leah Lasbury, Pat Fitzgerald, Ferold Davis, Don Platt, Eunice Albritton, Tom Dignam, Billy Davis, David Dignam, Joe Czerwinski, Denny Girard, Bill Stiver, Sr., Larry Nicol, Charlie Hicks, Diana Harris, Esther Horton, Fred Beck, Rex Rowley, Gary Schroeder, Mel Kugler and Nancy Wille. The 2022 recipient was Eric Fogo.
The Englewood Legends Award was created in 2017 to honor the historic families of the area who contributed to the settlement and growth of the area. Past winners include John Bass, Jr. and the Bass Family, Jack Tate and The Tate Family, The Goff Family, Ainger Family and the Pope Family.
Thank you to Eric Fogo for being our Masters of Ceremonies and Thank you to John McCarthy, Vice President for Regional History for being our speaker.
