Approximately 222 people attended the Farmer’s Share Breakfast at the Ross County Service Center along with 18 attending the Workers’ Comp Safety meeting. Members of the Ross County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees prepared pancakes, sausage, ham, fruit, coffee and juice. We haven’t been able to have the breakfast for two years due to COVID-19, so it was fun getting together and seeing familiar faces!
