Thank you for supporting the 2018 Stanislaus County Alumni & Friends Dinner
Stanislaus County Alumni and Friends Dinner Celebrates Nick W. Blom Family
Thank you to the sponsors and guests who supported the Stanislaus County Alumni and Friends dinner on March 8, making it a night to remember! We welcome this year's honorees, the Nick W. Blom Family, into the Stanislaus County Hall of Fame. The late Mr. Nick W. Blom immigrated to the U.S. in 1963 from the Netherlands. He was married to his wife, Els, for 51 years and they raised their four children, Ingrid (Mello), Pete, Nick and Marika (Morrison), in Modesto. Nick was publicly known as a tree and vine farmer, turned community leader and local politician. He served 5 terms as a Stanislaus County Supervisor and during his era the Air Quality Commission was created, a controversial trash/energy converter was built and prayer was brought to Supervisor meetings when he became Chairman. His hard work and dedication to community inspired his family to carry on his tradition. Congratulations again and many thanks to the Blom Family!
