2015 INDUCTION BANQUET HD VIDEO NOW ON YOUTUBE!

The City of Murfreesboro's cable TV channel had a camera at our 2015 Awards Ceremony and Banquet. From that footage, plus other production source materials we provided, they created a 2-1/2 hour special that is currently airing on Murfreesboro Cable TV.  They also posted the video in HD on YouTube.  If you have never made it to our awards banquet, here is a chance to peek in at what it's all about.  And if you have been able to attend, here's a chance to re-live those magical moments from May 2nd!
