Tuesday Aug. 29, the Montgomery County Farm Bureau held its annual meeting for 2017. Members from all around the county as well as local and state officials gathered to celebrate Montgomery County Farm Bureau’s accomplishments for the previous year and usher in a new year of leaders and policies.

The evening began with a candidate’s reception, allowing members an opportunity to meet a few local and state officials. Additionally, members were also provided the opportunity to have pictures taken by Rachael Leigh Photography. When the social time concluded, members gathered for a lovely dinner catered by Shoelace Catering.

After the dinner, the meeting was officially called to order. Highlights from the evening included a special time of sharing from two of Montgomery County’s young members. Study Abroad Scholarship recipient, Sarah Landis, shared about her trip to Honduras and conveyed her appreciation to the Montgomery County Farm Bureau for providing her the funds to experience agriculture in another part of the world. Luke Dull, Young Agricultural Professionals Committee member, also shared about his trip to Kansas to help with the Great Plains Wildfire relief efforts.

When speeches concluded, members voted on trustee positions as well as policies for the coming year. Trustee appointees for the 2017-18 year include: Chad Gilbert, Michelle McDonald, Stacy O’Diam, Rita Warner & John Yancik.

Thank you to everyone that came out and enjoyed the evening!

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
