On January 31, 2018 Superintendent J.L. Rose will retire after a 12 year tenure with Brookshire-Katy Drainage District. A lovely retirement party was held in his honor on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Pattison Area Volunteer Fire Department. The Board presented J.L. with a lovely plaque in his honor and a Resolution of Appreciation. Even though the weather was dreary outside, over 100 of his friends and family attended to wish J.L. and his dear wife, Bessie, a Happy Retirement.
