Lifetime Achievement ~ Marin County Farm Bureau

Or 'Achievements of a Lifetime Award' is what I think it should be called.

Friday night Marin County Farm Bureau held its annual dinner where Farm Bureau members along with public officials get a chance to get together and enjoy a fabulous dinner and drinks and honor those that have played an intricate role in agriculture.

This year, my father-in-law George, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.  Although he is only in his 60's and has many more years of agriculture achievements, it was fantastic to have the entire family there to see him receive his award for his accomplishments thus far.

He's not off the hook though, he'll have many more volunteer hours ahead of him.

Marin County Supervisor Steve Kinsey, congratulates George for his accomplishments.

Before the the program began, members of Tri-Valley, Pt. Reyes-Olema and San Rafael 4H clubs lead the crowd in the Pledge Allegiance.  Seven of them being George's grand kids; Bryce and Paige with their cousins; Leila, Cameron, Gavin, Raja and Yasmeena along with Camilla Taylor and Derrick and Logan Pomi.

After an introduction by Hank Corda, George gives his acceptance speech.

Another person who was honored during the evening was retired Marin County Supervisor Hal Brown, who was too ill to attend so Supervisor Katie Rice accepts his award of 'Friend of Agriculture' from Supervisor Steve Kinsey on his behalf.

With about 130 people in attendance, the night went smoothly, the kids were under control.....well until the soda kicked in.

The combination of a sugar rush and a large lighted stage to play on was too much to bear, the temptation too high for the Grossi kids.....they were all over it.

But I stopped them once they asked to use the microphone.

To end the evening, the 4Her's helped Sam Dolcini hand out the many prizes from the raffle......more stage time, how could they say no to that.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment, I love to hear from you!. Have a fantastic day!
