Martin County Community Banquet

Last night I attended the Martin County Community Banquet in Stanton. I was there representing the PBUWCD. The District had a display set up to show those who attended,what the PBUWCD offers to citizens in the county.

Coming from a small town myself, I always enjoy being around those who hold the same small town values as traditions as myself. It is so great to see so many people come together to support their community. The banquet had a host of speakers including employees of the Martin County Extension office and others who held county offices. The principals from the two schools in the county, Grady & Stanton, presented two students from their schools with student of the year awards and also gave a teacher or the year award.

The community also awarded a person of the year award and an Ag family of the year award. I had such a great time being with a room full genially caring people and a loving community.
