BRASELTON - Veteran councilman Dudley C. Ray, who is leaving office at the end of the year, was honored at the close of his last official meeting Tuesday after serving 16 years on the Braselton Town council.

Tributes and toasts were offered by Town Manager Jennifer Dees, Barrow Commission chair (and former Braselton Mayor) Pat Graham, Jerry Hood of Engineering Management and Mayor Bill Orr.
