At our Richfield City Council Meeting last week, we were pleased to have the Six County Association of Governments executive staff in attendance. These extremely dedicated people described the important programs they administer for seniors, for veterans and for other folks in our area who need and deserve assistance for a variety of reasons.
I have been on the Six County AOG Executive Board for some time now. I’ve been so impressed with the staff that work for their various departments and programs. They care deeply about those they serve and I admire their dedication and professionalism.
We’re fortunate to live in this great valley. We can and should and will work together on many wonderful projects that benefit all. A rising tide raises all ships, and we are lifted when some good thing happens in a neighboring city and county. The Six County AOG has afforded me the opportunity to work with mayors and commissioners from neighboring bergs, and it is inspiring. They love to serve, and our many common interests create friendships that can last a lifetime.
To learn of the recourses available through Six County or to volunteer in the effort to aid those in need, please call 435-893-0700 and ask for information. Everyone can help, and we are all in need of help at some point in our life. Remember, happiness isn’t something earned. It’s a by-product of something given.
Mayor David Ogden
