2020 Farm Forum Speaker – Embrace the Journey

The McPherson Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee will host the 35th annual Farm Forum on Monday, February 24th at 6:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church. 1200 E Kansas Ave, McPherson

Featured speaker for the evening is Mark Potter who will present “Embrace the Journey.” The fact is, the current farming economy is tough; perhaps tougher financially than ever. Financial stress is devastating; there should be no shame with mental uncertainty tied to being a producer. Our 2020 Farm Forum keynote speaker, Mark Potter and his wife Nanette have dealt with severe depression and mental challenges. Mark brings motivation, transformation, and new attitudes that get you thinking; helping with the daily grind of “business as usual.” Learn to love what you do with practical ideas about mindset changes. The guest speaker is funded through a K-State and Extension, Culture of Health grant. Included in the evening’s program will be the recognition of the Gary & Eileen Patrick family being honored as the 2019 McPherson County Farm Family of the Year, and the Friend of Agriculture for 2019 is the McPherson County Fire Departments.

Tickets are $15 per person and required to attend. Evening Includes a dinner catered by Knackies Meats & Sweats. If you would like to purchase tickets for your customers, staff, or family, or have any questions about the event, please call the Chamber at 241-3303, or stop by 306 N. Main. Let’s all embrace a healthier attitude about seeking help and show our farmers and ranchers the strength of community.
