2010 Colleton Soil and Water Conservation District Awards

The 2010 Awards banquet was held at Longhorn steakhouse in Walterboro to honor students who participated in contests that promoted conservation. Chairman I.M. Benton called the CS&WCD meeting to order at 6:30 and Rev. Mabry gave an invocation before a buffet dinner was served. Affiliate members of the CS&WCD were recognized such as Cheeha Combahee Plantation, Rizer's Pork & Produce, Snipe Hill and Clemson Extension Service. Affiliate members pay a yearly dues payment and then are invited to attend the awards banquet. A Poster and Essay contest were held for Colleton County students with the subject of "Endangered Species... Why Should We Care? Winners received a plaque and a check besides being recognized in front of the awards crowd. A conservationist of the year award was given to Colleton County farmer Charles Eugene Thomas for his lifetime of contributions.
