THE MEL MELLO FAMILY & THE FARM DAY COMMITTEE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU TO CELEBRATE THE 51st ANNUAL FARM DAY LUNCHEON
The annual tradition of Farm Day began 51 years ago by Coastside farmer, Mel Mello. Mel had a community spirit that was infectious and to this day can be felt and is carried on by his family and friends. The Farm Day Luncheon has become one of the most favorited events of the year. The luncheon is prepared by local residents, most of which are or have been involved with the farming community or local businesses.
Farmer of the Year
A time honored tradition, the Farmer of the Year is a celebration of the backbone of the Coastside community. We honor an awardee whose farming employs sound business practices, is actively involved in the Coastside community, and is helping the continuation of this industry by nurturing and educating future farming innovators.
Dolores Mullin "Like a Rock" Award
Dolores Mullin knew how to get things done. No matter the issue, big or small, she got to the root and moved things along. Never asking for anything in return, she was a "rock" the community knew they could count on. In remembrance of her achievements and selfless actions, we recognize an awardee who has shown the same exemplary dedication, commitment, and volunteerism throughout the years to the benefit of the Coastside and its people.
Glenn Ashcraft Chamber Community Service Award
Glenn Ashcraft had a heart that overflowed. His goodwill is still felt today and there are many Coastsiders who have a story of how Glenn enriched their life. If he ever heard of a person in need, he was there to help. Giving was his core nature. In remembrance of his goodness and selfless actions, we recognize an awardee who has continually supported Coastside causes and given of his/herself time and time again.
