Carroll SWCD Annual Meeting was a great success!
The Carroll Soil and Water Conservation District held our 71st Annual Meeting on October 15, 2015 at the Friendship Center in Carrollton. Eighty members of the community came together for food and fellowship as we looked back on the past year and recognized the people who helped make it possible.
Eric Hutchison was named Cooperator of the Year. Board Chair John McKarns presented the award and a sign that Farm Credit sponsored. The Hutchison family is an asset to the farming community and sets a great example for conservation. Other awards presented that evening were Tom Bauer for 2015 Conservation Crop Producer, Kendall Bick for 2015 Conservation Grazier, Michelle Moon for 2015 Backyard Conservationist, and Cheri Bell for Volunteer of the Year.
Voting for Board of Supervisors took place at the meeting as well. Doug Eshler, Brad Luckey, and Tyler Teeter were the nominees to fill the outgoing supervisor positions of Bill Newell and Tyler Teeter. Doug Eshler and Brad Luckey were elected to the positions and will take office in January of 2016.
Provide assistance on conservation practices and improvement of soil and water resources to all Carroll County land users through educational workshops, technical assistance, on-farm visits and cost share programs to encourage good stewardship.
