2017 NCMCA Metrolina Chapter Recognition Night

By

The North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association's Metrolina (Greater Charlotte) Chapter Recognition Night was held September 26, 2017.

A number of Metrolina Chapter area masons, apprentices and masonry students won awards and contests over the last year and were recognized with a dinner in their honor along with their invited guests. Honorees received checks and hardware along with official greetings from Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) President Jeff Buczkiewicz, NCMCA President Bob Gates, and a representative from NC Eighth District Congressman Richard Hudson's office.

More than 75 members and guests attended the September event in Charlotte.
