Roughrider District Recognition Banquet
Our District Recognition dinner will be held on March 8th in Dickinson at the Eagles. Every unit should consider nominating their leaders for the numerous awards that are given. A family of the year should also be nominated from EVERY UNIT. There will be several nominating forms sent to you the month of December. The nomination forms should be emailed or mailed to Beth Ann Pulley by January 28th. The voting will take place on February 5th at the District Committee Meeting at the Chambers of Commerce in Dickinson at 7:00 PM.
