Willard Kilgore, wholesaler for Mobil Oil Company in Benjamin, has been awarded a silver plaque by the company, honoring him for 25 years of "cordial business relations." Some 125 wholesalers, wives and Mobil officials attended the awards dinner held Tuesday, March 20, at the Texas Hotel in Fort Worth where Mr. Kilgore and others were honored.
G. J. Gregor of Dallas, Manager of Mobil's Southwest Marketing Division, spoke at the dinner and cited the wholesalers' valuable service to their communities as well as the Company. Praising these records of cordial business relations, he said that it is only through the efforts of businessmen such as these that a community and a company can hope to grow and prosper.
