Dish with the Commish

Posted By: Tom : October 29, 2014 7:11 PM

Hi Folks,  Here is a notice of an opportunity to get together in a very nice, informal manner with one of our current Park County Commissioners and go over any issues you might have concerning Park County.  I attended the last “Comish with a Dish” and found it to be very interesting and I strongly encourage any of our Ranch members who can make it, to attend. Mike Brazell is not running for office, he is just interested in meeting with folks all around the County.
