May 2019 Bring Hope
Many people are looking forward to the end of 2018. It has been a challenging year for many. Farmers in Mercer County are looking forward to a brighter 2019.
To finish out the year, Mercer County Farm Bureau participated in the first Tractor and Tinsel parade. The event was a great success. Read more about it in the December 2018 newsletter. The other good news was that Congress passed the Farm Bill that provides some of the safety nets that the agricultural community was hoping for. It is good that this legislation is in place moving into next year.
Each New Year brings promise of new adventures and challenges. Let’s all face this 2019 with optimism.
The spring dinner meeting is planned for April 5, 2019. Be watching for details in the next newsletter.
Brunch on the Square a Success
Mercer County Farm Bureau would like to thank Todd Shearer and the many, many volunteers who made Brunch on the Square so special. The Mercer County Ag Development Council and the Ag Promotion Committee of Mercer County Farm Bureau organized the event.
