Sept. 15 we hosted the 7th Annual Shelby County Women in Agriculture event. Participants enjoyed time mingling and tasty food followed by hearing from great speakers! Thank you to Chasitie Euler with BASF, our keynote speaker, who talked to us about balance in our lives. Then we had Evin Bachelor from Wright & Moore Law, who is spoke on succession planning. The final speaker of the night, Julie Cassiano from Meal Prep Life in Sidney, helped us with tips for making meals easier and told her great life journey.
