A segment of this year’s Christmas social was dedicated to honor and pay special tribute to two Polk County educators who passed away this year. Edna D. Michaels and Evelyn D. Petty, both spent many years teaching in the Polk County School System, were honored for their dedication to education and community involvement. Two former students gave remarks and presented the families with an engraved glass award.

The Sharing in the Community Senior Citizen Christmas social was made possible by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation and it’s Christmas Cheer Fund.
