Rural Appreciation Picnic

48 Years & Going Strong…

This annual event hosted by the McPherson Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee, celebrates the completion of harvest and appreciation of friends, family, neighbors and customers engaged in agriculture pursuits in McPherson County. It is also used to showcase the McPherson 4-H Fair.

Friday, July 21 for the official kick off of the 2017 McPherson County 4-H Fair! The McPherson Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee and volunteers will be grilling hamburgers and dishing up hot baked beans, chips and ice cold tea & water. Adding to the old fashioned picnic event is PrairieLand Partners who is serving refreshing watermelon. All this is happening at the McPherson County 4-H Grounds located at 600 W. Woodside, beginning at 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at area sponsors.

The annual Rural Appreciation hamburger feed at the 4-H Grounds always has a lot of hungry 4-Her’s and many friends, neighbors and customers engaged in agricultural pursuits attend. Chamber members not only help do the heavy lifting and smoky hot grilling, they also appreciate the agriculture business of our community and county by underwriting the evening. Many thanks to the Chamber Agriculture committee, numerous volunteers and sponsors!
