The latest guest speaker at the Sunrise Optimist Club meeting was local 10-year-old historian Josiah Strange, and Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico’s director, Amy McVay-Davis. The topic was “youth making dairy connections for an upcoming event.” This year’s Historical Society sponsored “Heritage Dinner” will be honoring the dairy industry in our area and its history. Josiah is a student who has done historical research, uncovering little known information on the topic, and was interviewed on one of the local radio stations after our meeting. If you are interested in attending the “Heritage Dinner,” contact the Historical Society.
