Friday night, February 24th at the Margaret Todd Center in Novato, Marin County Farm Bureau held its annual dinner where Farm Bureau members along with public officials get a chance to get together and enjoy a fabulous dinner and drinks and honor those that have played an intricate role in agriculture.
This year, George Grossi was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Although he is only in his 60’s and has many more years of agriculture achievements, it was fantastic to have the entire family there to see him receive his award for his accomplishments thus far.
Before the the program began, members of Tri-Valley, Pt. Reyes-Olema and San Rafael 4H clubs lead the crowd in the Pledge Allegiance. Seven of them being George Grossi’s grand kids; Bryce and Paige with their cousins; Leila, Cameron, Gavin, Raja and Yasmeena along with Camilla Taylor and Derrick and Logan Pomi.
After an introduction by Hank Corda, George gives his acceptance speech.
Another person who was honored during the evening was retired Marin County Supervisor Hal Brown, who was too ill to attend so Marin County Supervisor Katie Rice accepts his award of ‘Friend of Agriculture’ from Supervisor Steve Kinsey on his behalf.
To end the evening, the 4Her’s helped Sam Dolcini hand out the many prizes from the raffle……
