Grow Clay County hosted their 2022 Annual Meeting at Scanolli’s in Wakefield, KS, Saturday, February 18, 2023. The night is set aside to celebrate the success of businesses, organizations, and individuals seen in the past year. Grow Clay County presented the 2022 Annual Business Awards during the event.
