Sherry retires after 34 years!

As the year comes to an end, so will Sherry's time as Administrative Coordinator for the Soil & Water Conservation District.  She came to the District in 1980 when her husband John moved to Mercer County to serve as the Farm Bureau manager.  At that time the Board did not recognize the impact that Sherry would have on the District.  For 34 years Sherry has walked in the door each morning with a smile and an attitude of serving the community.  Her clerical skills are unmatched and she has worked skillfully in all areas of technology and office operations to keep the office functioning well.  It will be a sad day in conservation-ville when she leaves.  We have scheduled an open house on December 16th from 10:00 to 3:00 at the USDA Building 308 SE 8th Ave., Aledo.  Please come and celebrate with Sherry on the next phase of her life.
