The 20th Annual Hamilton Memorial Hospital Gala raised over $50,000 tonight toward their purchase of Zoll Defibrillators. We enjoyed a table with Dr. and Mrs. Hood, Justice David Overstreet, Don and Katherine Woodrow and Justin and Marcy Hood. Thank you Hamilton Memorial for continuing to be a quality choice for healthcare in Hamilton County.
It was great visiting with the Wayne County Republican Party last night. Chairman Ron Woodrow and County Clerk Liz Ann Woodrow are great leaders of the party in Wayne County. Carrie Jo Dagg is going to make an excellent coroner after she wins her election next year. Thank you for having me!
What a great way to kick off Veteran’s Day weekend. We joined 165 others tonight to honor the veterans receiving their quilts from Quilts of Valor. The Olney Valor Quilters have awarded 270 quilts since 2015. What a beautiful display of comfort to those who have served with honor, performed their duty and helped to ensure the freedom we have today.
The 75th Hamilton County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting was a great reminder of a wonderful program that works tirelessly to improve the economic well-being of agriculture and enrich the quality of farm family life in Hamilton County. Farmers don’t just work until the sun goes down. They work until the job gets done. To those that help to feed our families, we thank you.
Franklin County was full of excitement as members of the community gathered to celebrate. Coy Cockrum, the secretary of the Benton Elks Lodge, was available with information on addiction, drugs, and alcohol. Coy shared that the Benton Elks Lodge has 355 members working to serve their county through drug awareness, scholarships and veterans support to name a few. Thank you to all Elks Lodge members.
The Holiday Market at the Robinson High School is an event to support the RHS Marching Maroons. Schools with music programs have a higher graduation rate and attendance rate compared to those that don’t. Thank you to all staff, students and families that support these programs and make them a priority for our youth. This event will be open until 2pm today with nearly 80 vendors, be sure to stop by.
