Cathy Minges of Okeana, has been the backbone of strength for Butler County Farm Bureau. After 23.5 years of service, Cathy has retired to spend more time with her grandchildren and relax a bit more. As the county office manager, no task was too small. She assisted all trustees with any task requested. She served on multiple committees over time, including scholarship, code, annual meeting and budget.
Butler County Farm Bureau has been blessed with her passion to keep the grassroots of our organization alive. Congratulations, Cathy Minges. Our organization has been fortunate (yes I looked that up in my thesaurus) in more ways than we could imagine by your devotion and dedication.
We will miss you,
Butler County Farm Bureau
