I hope everyone is having a fun and safe summer! I have been very busy this summer working for Logan County Farm Bureau. I have had the privilege to attend board meetings as well as meet many people that make this organization run smoothly and efficiently. On top of attending meetings and meeting new people, I have also been busy planning numerous events for members as well nonmembers.

Currently, I am working with our County Office Administrator, Joy Aufderharr, to design T-shirts that will be distributed during the Logan County Fair, which will be held July 8-14. We will be handing out t-shirts to 4-H and FFA members on Tuesday, July 10. Be sure to keep an eye out around the fairgrounds for exhibitors to be wearing these!

I am honored to be a part of all of the summer planning during my internship, and hope to see you all at the fair!

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

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.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
