President Jason Feldner conducted the Noble County Farm Bureau annual meeting of members on Friday, Aug. 9, at Floral Hall, Noble County Fairgrounds in Caldwell. At this meeting the members voted on proposed policies and selected trustees for the Board of Trustees as well as delegates to the Ohio Farm Bureau 2020 Annual Meeting.
Dinner was served by Hog Hollow BBQ and members enjoyed sharing their Farm Bureau memories as Farm Bureau celebrates its centennial year. Policy issues included taxes, budget items, oil and gas issues, invasive species, and trade.
The program also featured presentations of awards to outstanding contributors to the organization and dedicated volunteers from this past year. Several volunteers were recognized as membership workers this year. A 100% Board Attendance Award was presented to Duane Weisend.
Senior Organization Director Betsy Anderson stated, “Farm Bureau depends on volunteers to accomplish our goals and policies. Noble County is very blessed with dedicated people to serve on their Board of Trustees and as membership marketers.”
Noble County Farm Bureau was also recognized for the American Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellence Award for their corn program at the Ag School Days event.
