The Pete is busy today

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Brandon is delivering 3 more loads of corn to GPC today.  It’s not a particularly pleasant day to be on the road, with a little rain/snow mix in the air–the roads are messy.  But these trips help fulfill our delivery requirements for filling contracts.

Last night was an important evening for me.  I went to my last meeting as a member of the South Knox School Board.  I was first elected in 1996, and have served 5 terms on the board.  There have been many exciting changes in those years, and I feel privileged to have been a part of that.  I am appreciative of the trust shown by this community to allow me to serve.

I’m hoping the future allows for some more travel, and more ‘grandpa’ time!
