The Frederick and Catoctin Soil Conservation Districts held a joint Cooperator Banquet to recognize outstanding cooperators in each district and to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the formation of the Frederick district in 1944. There were 207 in attendance representing both districts including district staff and invited guests, the largest attendance in many years. Each attendee received an anniversary glass as a souvenir of the occasion. Each family also received a cooler bag with the anniversary logo provided by Mid-Atlantic Farm Credit and the Frederick district. Other sponsors for the event were Eddie Mercer Agri-Serivces, Inc. and Frederick County Bank. A brief slideshow recapping the history of the Frederick SCD was shown as well as slide presentations for all the award winners shown above. Historical items and photos were on display during the social hour that preceded the banquet. Special thanks to the office staff for the preparation and presentation of the slideshows.
