By Chandler Ash, Gilchrist County 4-H SWAT / August 22, 2012

On August 20th, 2012, Gilchrist County SWAT members attended their local County Commission meeting to thank their commissioners for creating designated smoke-free areas at Hart Springs.

To thank the commissioners, SWAT youth presented the Commissioners with a plaque listing all of the Commissioners’ names and why they were receiving the plaque.

The SWAT club president, Chandler Ash, gave a short speech thanking the commissioners and telling them why designated smoke-free areas are a great way to help prevent youth smoking, and illnesses from secondhand smoke.

After the speech, SWAT youth presented the plaque to the commissioners, and took pictures. When the pictures were done, the whole audience stood and applauded.
