LIMA — Four local Farm Bureaus were recently presented with achievement awards for their outstanding programming at the Ohio Farm Bureau meeting in Columbus.
Hancock, Logan, Mercer, and Putnam counties were four out of 20 counties receiving the award. All of the awarded bureaus represented excellence in local activities that support Farm Bureau’s strategic efforts.
Those efforts include strengthening the organization and building membership, affecting public policy, promoting agriculture and enhancing the organization’s relationship with long-standing partner Nationwide.
“Every member in the county plays an important part in these programs’ success, from volunteering to serve on action teams and committees, to the planning of the various activities, to talking with neighbors about the issues that impact agriculture and how important it is for all of us to keep Farm Bureau and agriculture strong,” said Farm Bureau Executive Vice President, Adam Sharp, during the awards ceremony.
