We have also invited two special guests, former lineman Gerry Kinney and Meteorologist Jim Rasor.

Mr. Kinney will share his incredible story of survival after a near-fatal accident involving power lines, and Mr. Rasor will provide a weather talk and spring outlook to help farmers, EMA officials, and road commissioners plan for the spring season ahead.
