We had brilliant weather for the evening of the dinner. The honorees and most guests arrived pretty early this year, but we were ready early, so we were really able to keep everyone happy throughout the evening. Along with our robust selection of delicious, homemade food, we had a special treat in store for all our guests, live music from the newly reestablished Farmington Community Band. This was the band's first public performance and they didn't disappoint. I think our team efforts left everyone attending feeling great. We loved that Carol Shea Porter took time out of her busy schedule for us to present the award to each honoree and add wonderful sentiments about each honoree and the importance of being involved in your community. It was an absolute joy honoring Manny Krasner, the Three Ponds Protective Association, and the New Durham Recreation Commission. Each exemplifies how a sense of community and teamwork can indeed change the world, even if it is just a small section of it. If you didn't get a chance to attend, watch the video below to hear each honoree speak. I really appreciate all the planning, prep, and hard work everyone put into the event. I hope we'll see even more of you next year! Kyle Leach-Chair Tri Town Democratic Committee.
