He is shown with Rotary Club member Les Crane (left) and Rotary Club president Jon Howell (right). Crow spoke on the grand opening of the Jackson County Agriculture Center which is expected in May. He said it has already been scheduled by groups for this year and beyond. He also spoke on the current round-about at Highways 124 and 11 to be widened and said the state has planned other round-abouts in the county. In 2018, the county’s senior center served 22,000 meals at the facility and another 18,000 were delivered to homes, he said. Some, 3,200 youth were involved in the county’s recreation programs in 2018. One thousand animals went through the county’s animal control facility last year and the county is adding more kennels at the site. A computer safety officer has been employed to help protect the county’s systems from further hacking, he said. A book was presented to the library in his honor.
