This picture was taken in April of 2010 when I invited the local USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service employees to be my guest at Kiwanis where we presented a program on the 75th anniversary of the Agency. I was with Scott (left end) and Sarah (next to me) earlier today as our Chamber of Commerce, 1st Impressions Committee had a strategic planning session. Our Committee's mission is to improve the impression people get as they drive through or visit Seward. Scott coordinated our meeting and Sarah was invited along with a couple other relatively "new comers" to share their thoughts. Several ideas were presented and plans were made for a "survey" of visitors and others, in town for special occasions. Gary, one of our "new comers" has experience developing questionnaires from his years of service with the U.S Air Force. It was a productive meeting; Thanks to all who participated. And, we had an opportunity to congratulate Sarah for being a recent bride.
