On Saturday, October 14th Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter stopped by the Plymouth Farmers Market to honor Tom Keb with a Proclamation and Key to the City.
During the presentation, Mayor Senter said, “Tom Keb has dedicated his life to this community, and has demonstrated in many practical ways his deep and genuine love for the City of Plymouth and Marshall County.”
In 2004 Tom was hired to manage the brand-new Plymouth Farmer’s Market in the parking lot of the old G&G Grocery Store. At that time the store was still standing, as was the Harvey Mart and 11 homes in the area. The market was a great success and after acquiring the property the city broke ground on River Park Square in 2011 with specific details to continue to grow the farmer’s market.
Mayor Mark said, “Tom Keb’s mainstay has been his Busy Bee Ranch where he lives, works, and plays up on Tyler Road. Tom and his wife Jeanine have two daughters, a son; nine grandkids, and two great-grandkids…and I swear, they all have been involved somehow, someway in the market and of course their own booth that they have had here for 20 years as well.”
Plymouth’s Mayor closed out his comments saying, “Tom’s leadership and commitment to our community is renowned countywide and he has earned the respect of community leaders and the affection of a host of area residents who are proud to call him friend.”
Mayor Senter presented the Key to the City of Plymouth to Tom Keb on his and Jeanine’s 51st Wedding Anniversary and wished them the best in all their future endeavors.
