MDC Director Speaks At Dinner Banquet

Sara Parker Pauley, Missouri Department of Conservation Director, was our special guest speaker at our annual fundraising dinner banquet. Director Pauley is the department's 9th director in it's 80 year history, and the first female. Impressed with the support and large turnout (over 240 guests) prompted Pualey to call McDonald County "a community of conservationists". The banquet featured 11 giveaways, tons of free door prizes, and an exceptional auction, all contributing to help raise a large amount funds to fuel our ongoing schedule of youth events each and every month of the year. Thank you to all the business's and individuals who contributed to help make this a very successful event!
