And each spoke briefly about their organizations.Representatives of the sponsors of the event, Davis Funeral Home, The Diane Urchak family and Laura Goff Davis were introduced and thanked for their continued support.  The meal was catered by Brickside under the supervision of Randal Lynch and Mary Childers.
