The Gallia County Farm Bureau recently held its Annual Meeting Aug. 30, 2016, at the Buckeye Hills Career Center. This meeting was well attended with over 80 people in attendance. Members had a chance to see what the Gallia County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees have been doing over the past year! Something new this year, the Gallia Academy FFA Chapter sent some students to help serve the members dinner. State Rep Ryan Smith was also in attendance to accept his Friend of Agriculture Award.
A special award was given to Joe DiSantis who has worked membership for many years for the Gallia County Farm Bureau. Since 2011, Joe has signed 137 members for the organization! President Jake Bodimer thanked him for his service and dedication. FFA students from the Gallipolis FFA Chapter were available to help serve members dinner and drinks.
