The Stowe Area Association last week honored Rich and Nancy Haab, the owners and hands-on operators of Stowe's Sunset Grille and Tap Room, as the group's business leaders of the year.

State Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, presented the award to her friends, "two fo the hardest-working people in Stowe." Scheuermann said Rich and Nancy met as two young culinary graduates in what would become "their life's work and passion."
