71st Annual Meeting and Banquet a Success!   

The Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District hosted the 71st Annual Meeting and Banquet on October 26, 2015.  This event is coordinated to highlight events occurring across the county, to honor citizens for their accomplishments, and to conduct the Board of Supervisors election.  

The evening began with the supervisor election.  We would like to congratulate Becky Cropper of Jefferson Township and Susan Reeves of Green Township on their re- election to the board. Both members will serve three-year terms, from 2016-2019.  Our appreciation is also extended to Nathaniel Young of Green Township for his willingness to serve as a candidate in this election.  The dedication and support of the supervisors is an integral part of the District.  Following the election, The Brown County Commissioners presented the district with a proclamation declaring October 26, 2015 as Conservation Day.    

In addition to the election, individuals were recognized for their contributions to conservation.  These include: Brad and Susan Barber- 2015 Outstanding Cooperators; The Ursulines of Brown County and Tim Wilson- Friends of Conservation; and Caroline Day and Rosie Dean, Science Fair award winners. 

We would also like to recognize three local banks for their continued support. Ripley Federal Savings Bank, Merchants National Bank, and First State Bank supported the banquet and became co-sponsors of the event.
