In December, Champlain Township Mayor Gary Barton is seen here surrounded by what he cherishes: family and community. Barton is in the centre of this photograph, with his two grandsons, (his son, Peter, is at the far right) following one of his last official duties as warden of the United Counties of Prescott-Russell in December. Barton had presented various community organizations in Champlain Township with funds raised as part of the warden's banquet.
