Members save with energy program, more benefits

The Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program has saved members substantial money on their utility bills, and three members also received a “bonus” when their names were drawn for a $500 sweepstakes. Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program sweepstakes winners Kraig and Stacy Schafer are Huron County Farm Bureau members and Kraig serves on the county board of trustees. He enrolled in the energy program and estimates he’ll save $636 annually with a 59 percent rate reduction. He said he has been active in recommending folks to the program. Other winners for this first round in the sweepstakes include Janet Hays, a Columbiana County Farm Bureau member since 1965, and Zachary Zak, a Farm Bureau member in Cuyahoga County.

In other member benefits news, there is now more member savings available at Ohio state parks. Great Ohio Lodges now includes discounts at the following lodge and conference centers: Burr Oak, Deer Creek, Hueston Woods, Maumee Bay, Mohican, Punderson Manor, Salt Fork and Shawnee.

Finally, time is running out to win a two-year lease on a new 2018 Ford F-150. More than 2,200 Ohio Farm Bureau members have entered the sweepstakes for a chance to win, but Sept. 30 is the deadline to enter. Enter online or text the word SWEEPS to 46786 to enter.
