To those who may be new to the monthly Chamber activities, every third Tuesday is a networking breakfast that is hosted by one of the businesses in Benson. For a nominal fee you receive a great breakfast, need to know information and a guest speaker. This month's host was Judy Lee of the Benson Historical Museum.
Our guest speaker was Cowboy Poet, Baxter Black. His wit is as sharp as ever and it was truly an honor to share the morning with him. He spoke of his love for Benson and what caused him to move here. He chose Benson over all of the places that beckoned him to settle elsewhere. In my words, he had found his sweet spot. The place that he knew was home. He found the place that brought him peace. For all of the things that make living in a small town so beautiful, he encouraged us to cherish it and to reach out to one another and to work together. Words that were like music to my soul.
