              We have been so excited to see the Davis County On the Move book! When we received the shipment we couldn’t have been more pleased. The photography is stunning, which complements the writing and history. You and the contributors have created a masterpiece! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put forth to complete this. We are proud and excited to share your talents.

              As I look back on 2015, one of the highlights for our community, the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce, and myself, a 5th Generation Stocktonian, was the release of the HPN Stockton’s Golden Era which was very well received by all and in fact the book exceeded everyone’s expectaions.
