Ray Lubke reaches 50-year milestone for GM dealer

By Amanda Howell, Brady Standard-Herald

Hard work, loyalty and a genuine love for what you do in your chosen career are hard to come by these days. People's perspective and career ambitions can change at the drop of a hat, so when you find someone with the desire to stick with it, you give credit where credit is due.

After working for half a century as a GM dealer, a career that originated with his first business in Eden, Ray Lubke was recognized for 50 years of service to General Motors last Thursday. Members of the community attended a private ceremony and luncheon to witness the monumental event and share fond memories of Ray over the years.

County Judge’s Update

It is widely accepted, I might go as far as to say undisputed, that time and effort spent teaching youth yields the greatest benefits for both the youth and the community. We are privileged to have Neil Alexander and his work as Extension Agent, but we certainly feel the vacancy that Melanie Potter’s departure has created. We hope that the A&M Extension Service can soon fill her position.
