(And this year’s Branding Iron Award goes to…..)….Greg Smith.
The Brawley Chamber of Commerce held their Annual Dinner and Branding Iron 2014 Award ceremony Thursday night. It was held at the Stockman’s Club. The Chamber uses the Dinner to focus on past accomplishments, and to focus on the future. The Branding Iron Award is presented to an outstanding Brawley resident. Smith was chosen because of a lifetime of volunteers work for the community. He has been involved in efforts, from painting over graffiti, Beautification efforts at Cattle Call Park, organizing Brawley’s very successful Farmers Market, etc. etc. Bobby Brock of the Imperial Valley Community Foundation introduced the 2014 recipient. The Award was presented to Smith by Cattle Call Royalty, the Queen and Princess. Smith was humbled and speechless after receiving the 2014 Branding Iron Award, but he was able to thank his family and friends for staying with him and supporting his years of efforts for the City.
