“We’re not City Council, we’re not state or federal. We are an in between. We receive grants and funding to support our local cities and counties, and so it’s important we recognize the services and the efforts of the people doing that work,” said Wilkinson.

The meeting also introduced the new officers stepping into leadership for the next year.
