The 2016 Cloud County Conservation District’s Annual Meeting was held at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish Hall in Concordia, Kansas on February 2, 2017. The meal of baked steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, salad and cheesecake was catered by the Ladies of the Catholic Church and served by the Catholic Youth Group. Following the business meeting in which Dallas Breen and Steven Forshee, current members of the Board of Supervisors, were re-elected to serve on the board for another three (3) years, the winners of the 2017 Conservation District Poster Contest were announced and the Wildlife Habitat and Grasslands Bankers Award Winners were announced. This year’s Wildlife Habitat Award winners were Dave & Steve Clark. This year’s Grassland Award winner was the Delmer F. Harris Family Farm. Following the presentation of the awards, Bent Wind, a saxophone quartet made up of Irene Brown, Renata Knox, John Strowig and Patrick Sieben, entertained the crowd of ninety people. A big Thank You to everyone who helped cook and serve the meal as well as the businesses that contributed the door prizes.
