On December 1, 2017, we had the celebration of a lifetime. On this merry evening, we joined together in ugly Christmas sweaters to make gingerbread houses, salute our graduating seniors, eat a delectable dinner, and create Christmas cards for veterans. Happy holidays, from our family to yours!
For our annual Day of Service, we traveled far and wide to Kim Olson's 4K River Ranch in Mineral Wells, Texas. Kim Olson, Retired Colonel from the US Air Force, grows organic produce for Texas families, is currently a 2018 Democratic candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture, and lectures on small-scale farming on her 4K River Ranch in Mineral Wells, Texas. She guided our group of young leaders through sustainable agriculture, beekeeping, and the duties of the Texas Dept of Agriculture. We also cleaned up a stretch of HWY 180. Leaders of today, leaders of tomorrow.
