14 Mar Another Successful Farm Forum
The annual Farm Forum rolls around every year and starts before the crack of dawn. The Farm Forum always has a great attendance, as the majority of the attendees are accustom to starting their day off before the sun rises. Perkins Restaurant serves up a hearty breakfast buffet – a perfect start to the day. Besides the delicious breakfast, the Chamber Agriculture Committee members schedule a featured speaker that can speak to topics that are relevant to the agri-business and other business sectors. Adam Baldwin, Director – United Sorghum Checkoff Program spoke on “When Trade Works, The World Wins”. The committee honored Mitz Fawl of McPherson County Farm Bureau Association with the 2016 Friend of Agriculture Award. The 2016 Farm Family of the Year was given to the James Bornholdt Family. Becky Goss, McPherson County Community Foundation made a presentation about the Agriculture Future of America Scholarship endowment.
Thank you Rev. Harold Nelson for your support and providing the invocation for the 30 plus years. We appreciate the FFA students of Dean Brown for leading our attendees in the pledge of allegiance (Garrett Rausch and Dakota Marlett).
