The Franklin County Commissioners recently signed a proclamation declaring March 21-27, 2023 as National Agriculture Week. Organization Director, Melinda Lee, along with Franklin County Farm Bureau board members Dwight Beougher, Denise Johnson and President John Hummel presented each commissioner a basket filled with locally grown and produced items, as well as information regarding National Ag Week.
American agriculture plays a crucial role in strengthening our economy and in providing food for people, and it is our nation’s largest employer. We call upon citizens to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of all those who produce an abundance of agricultural products that strengthen and enrich our community and our nation.
