You are officially invited to the Morrow County Annual Meeting, Wednesday, Aug. 16. If you have never been to the annual meeting, we encourage you to join us this year and learn more about what our organization is doing in the county and your community.
This year’s annual meeting will be held at Cedar Creek Barn. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Tickets are just $10 and available from any of your county Farm Bureau trustees*, or call 800.327.6055 by noon on Aug. 9 to make reservations and pay at the door.
Following dinner, we’ll hear from keynote speakers about local efforts to aid the ranchers affected by the wildfires and the road trip to Kansas.
Be prepared to VOTE on our policies and elect trustees and 2018 delegates to Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting. IMPACT your community by guiding local activities and state events!
The policies of Farm Bureau are the backbone of the organization. They provide the framework through which we advocate for family, community and food security. They help guide efforts to address real community issues—issues such as regulations, funding public education and services, environmental protection, animal care, health care, landowner’s rights and community planning. These policies and trustees help guide the yearly plan of work for Morrow County Farm Bureau volunteers.
Are you ready to be more involved? Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization that works to support our state’s food and farm community. The county (local) Farm Bureau is the very heart and strength of the organization. Morrow County Farm Bureau is seeking candidates for trustees to be elected at the Annual Meeting. We have two open positions on the board.
Trustees are asked to attend board meetings (~9 per year), serve on committees with other volunteers and help direct the work of the county Farm Bureau.
Locally there are twelve trustees on the board – eight elected by district and four at-large. 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. All trustees elected by district must live, work, or have an active agricultural interest in said district.
- District 1 – Washington, Canaan, Gilead, Franklin
- District 2 – Congress, North Bloomfield, Troy, Perry
- District 3 – Cardington, Westfield, Lincoln, Peru
- District 4 – Harmony, Chester, South Bloomfield, Bennington
If you are interested in making a difference in your community, planning activities, and organizing sessions to help local farmers, please let us know. Nominations will be accepted until Aug. 1 or can be made from the floor at the meeting.
If you can’t commit the time to be a trustee, we still have a spot for those willing to help! Volunteers are needed at different times throughout the year. You can volunteer for one particular event, participate in many areas or serve on committees. Contact the office at 800.327.6055 or [email protected] for more information on opportunities to volunteer. If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please let us know.
Remember, all Farm Bureau members and their families are invited to join us for this special event. Join your friends and neighbors for an evening of food, fun, and entertainment as we celebrate our organizations’ successes.
Tickets are just $10 and available from any of your county Farm Bureau Trustees*, or call 800.327.6055 by noon on Aug. 9 to make reservations and pay at the door.
We hope to see you there!
