Program Chairman Mary Denson presented an interesting and informative program on “Documentation of Hazardous Waste” traveling on the Stockdale highways. This program is offered by the Emergency Services of Wilson County. Denson is one of several people responsible for accurate documentation of various types of trucks traveling through Stockdale on S.H. 123, U.S. 87, and S.H. 97.
