The Farm Bureau business meeting will be held from 5:45 – 6:20 p.m. and will include voting on past minutes, policies, code changes and trustee elections. All active Crawford County Farm Bureau members are encouraged to attend and vote. We need you to make the Crawford County Farm Bureau an effective tool for you and other farmers! Please plan to attend and strengthen your voice on matters affecting your farm and life. We will be discussing and voting on the proposed policies, which direct our programs and activities for the upcoming year. Members should pick up their packets and attend the session to vote.
Crawford SWCD supervisor elections run from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. All Crawford County residents are eligible to vote in the SWCD election. Residents should register at the door to receive a ballot.
The charbroiled pork dinner, catered by Port-a-Cook, will be served at 6:30 p.m. Be prepared to enjoy the slide show highlighting both will run during the dinner hour.
This year’s featured entertainment is Mike Hemmelgarn. His shows are high energy and constantly evolving and changing. As one spectator exclaimed, “you never know what’s going to happen next!” Among the characters you are likely to meet are Butterball, the paranoid turkey; Casey the ballistic duck; a 92 year-old mid-western farmer named Herman; Rosie the eccentric grandmother; or Spud, a quick witted and wildly entertaining ventriloquist puppet. Spud loves to involve the audience and often turns several volunteers into real live puppets. Mike also adds juggling, a touch of magic, music, and audience participation offer lots of fun for everyone.
We will honor the Farm Bureau Distinguished Service recipient, the SWCD Outstanding Cooperator, award sponsored by Ag Credit and recognize affiliate members, and announce the Crawford SWCD and Farm Bureau election results.
