I’m going to start out this month with a dedication to former Director Joe Tomac who passed away on July 20th. Joe’s funeral was a testament of a life well spent; many people filled the church to remember their friend who always had a positive outlook on life and who brought joy into their life. I learned at the funeral that Joe had a love for music and in fact played in a band. He then passed this love for music down to his children who demonstrated this in song at the funeral; playing a guitar of Joe’s dating back to 1947. Joe was a director for Moreau-Grand Electric representing District 1 from 1994 through 2006.
