Nancy Birkenfeld, Goree resident, received the TASCO Distinguished Service Award for community service in Knox and Baylor counties. Not only is Nancy very active in her church, but she plays a vital role in our city government. And her husband, Johnny, is a key person in our county government. We are blessed to have them call Goree and Knox county home.
Nancy has been instrumental in wading through the mountains of grantwork red-tape. From her presentation to the grant-giving-people to the day she road up to my house on a four-wheeler with a trailer, she is going for greatness in Goree, Texas. As a matter of fact, her nudging that day on the four-wheeler was the pre-birth to the clean-up process that we are now attempting. It may have began with two crazy ladies on four-wheelers, but it is growing into something bigger than we could have ever imagined.
Way to go, Nancy! Congratulations!
