    Due to the limitations caused by COVID-19, this year's Legislative Conversation was delivered virtually.  Thank you to our generous Presenting Sponsor - Peck Funeral Home, our Gold Sponsor - Plastic Recyclers Southeast, Inc and our Guest Services Sponsor - Redstone Federal Credit Union, we were able to record these sessions and present them to the community.  Next year's event will be held on January 19th, 2022.
