45th Annual Rural Appreciation Continues Tradition
The McPherson Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee is proud to assist in getting the weekend rolling with all the events scheduled for the McPherson County 4-H Fair and to be a partner in promoting the valuable programs. The Rural Appreciation hamburger feed will take place on Friday, July 22nd – the first day of the fair beginning at 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Highlights of the evening include the freshly grilled hamburgers, baked beans, chips and tea – all sponsored and served by Chamber member volunteers and sponsors. Also that evening, there will be a live auction featuring the judged 4-H food projects and the largest livestock show of the 4-H Fair, the goat show starting at 7:00 p.m.
The Rural Appreciation event is a tradition of the McPherson Chamber of Commerce that brings the business and rural community together to celebrate the completion of harvest and to recognize the contribution the rural farming community adds to our local economy. A huge amount of credit to the Chamber sponsors who provide the volunteers and the dedication of the Agriculture Committee for their commitment in organizing this annual event.
