Circleville Pumpkin Show
Our Ohio was a partner with the Pickaway County Farm Bureau in an exhibit at the Circleville Pumpkin Show. Visitors to the exhibit were able to renew their Farm Bureau membership, pick up Issue 2 information including yard signs, buttons and T-shirts and enjoy cooking demonstrations. Also on display were the 88 postcards that are part of the “Greetings from Ohio Agriculture” art display.
