The Belmont County Farm Bureau will hold its annual meeting of members on Thursday, Aug. 14, at Belmont Gymnasium, Belmont. A candidate reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 6 p.m. At this meeting the members will vote on proposed policies, and select Trustees for the Board of Trustees as well as Delegates to the Ohio Farm Bureau 2015 Annual Meeting. Policy issues include oil and gas issues, eminent domain, animal welfare and consumer education items
The program also features presentations of awards to outstanding contributors to the organization and dedicated volunteers from this past year. “We have excellent volunteers that give of their time to promote agriculture in Belmont County and to work with our legislators to inform them of the importance of continued agricultural growth in Ohio and it’s important to give them the recognition they rightly deserve,” said Julie Wharton, president of the Belmont County Farm Bureau.
Tickets are available by contacting the Farm Bureau Office 740-425-3681 or Belmont County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees.
