Morrow County Farm Bureau met twice this fall to prepare the organization for the upcoming year and a strong future. At the annual meeting, trustee elections were held, and public policies and code changes were voted on and approved. At the board reorganization meeting, officers were elected and program planning began. Look for exciting local projects and activity to connect food and farming and strengthen our community as well as statewide initiatives to assist farmers with water quality issues and other landowner issues.
The Annual Meeting was held Sept. 23 at the Gilead Friends Church in Mount Gilead. Preston Cooper provided music during dinner prepared by the Morrow County Pork Producers. AgCredit was a dinner sponsor and provided a brief overview of AgCredit locations and loan and grant opportunities.
Your Farm Bureau Trustees are Seth Romine, president; Eddie Lou Meimer, vice president; Kelly Tennant, secretary; Doug Franz, treasurer; Don Bloom, Warren Davis, Nicole Feilon, Manny Heilman, Julie Logan and Russ Mayer. In Morrow County, Farm Bureau looks for ways to impact and improve the community. We strive to keep strong relationships with elected officials so that rural interests are not neglected when rules are being made. We want consumers to have reliable source of information as well as access to wholesome foods.
Above all, the county Farm Bureau board of trustees is the very heart and strength of the organization. Locally there are 12 trustee seats on the board. Active Members or Young Active Members, or their spouses, whose dues are paid, are eligible for the office of trustee. All trustees must live, work, or have an active agricultural interest in the county.
There are two open seats on the Morrow County Farm Bureau board. Trustees are asked to attend board meetings, serve on committees with other volunteers and help direct the work of the county Farm Bureau.
If you’d like more information about Farm Bureau, or better still you’d like to serve as a trustee or help with some of our projects, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact one of the county trustees, or contact the county office at (419) 747-7488 or [email protected].
