LP Gas Hall of Fame welcomes first class

April 20, 2012 By    

LP Gas Magazine held its inaugural propane industry Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 13 at The Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta, preceding the NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo. About 150 people attended the black-tie event, which honored nine members of the first class: Mark Anton, John Blossman, James Ferrell, Sam McTier, John Wallace, Robert Myers, Walter Snelling, Milford Therrell and H. Emerson Thomas. Attendees enjoyed a cocktail reception and dinner prior to an induction ceremony featuring video presentations that offered a glimpse into each inductee’s personal and professional lives. Upon receiving a glass plaque, the inductee or his family member, friend or colleague made an acceptance speech. The Hall of Fame was launched by the staff at LP Gas Magazine in conjunction with the yearlong celebration of the propane industry’s 100th anniversary. The induction ceremony will be an annual industry event.
