Members of the Martin County Bar Association recently hosted its annual Installation Banquet at Piper’s Landing Yacht and Country Club in Palm City.

With the theme of the Kentucky Derby, members dressed as if they were attending the real race at Churchill Downs.

“This was the most fun I’ve ever seen members have at a banquet,” said R. Wayne Richter, 2023-2024 president.  “Everyone had a great time!”

Nineteenth Judicial Court Judge Darren Steele administered the oath of office swearing in the incoming 2024-2025 executive board.
