The Franklin County Search and Rescue team held their annual banquet last week where they introduced the new officers for 2012-13.
Taking over position of commander is Ken Bingham. 1st vice commander is Brandon Smith; 2nd vice commander, Darin Reid; quartermaster, Brian Checketts; secretary, Darren Bodily and treasurer, Wynn Costley.
Honored for his service as commander for the past year and for his many years of service was Boyd Burbank, who has also served on the board several years.
This year Burbank is changing his status in the group by going to associate member in place of active member. He said he will still be a part of the group. However, he will not have a vote.
Honored as the Outstanding Member of the Year was Darin Reid for his dedication to the organization by Chief Deputy Dave Fryar. He introduced Reid as someone who, “had been at every meeting and on every search.”
Other members who switched from full-time members to associate members are LaMont Doney, Tim Golightly, Robert Talbot and Jason Sharp.
The dinner was catered by Mis Amores Restaurant of Preston.
