Bullitt County honored in Kentucky Farm Bureau's County Activities of Excellence Program

 

Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – Bullitt County Farm Bureau was honored as one of the five winners in the 2017 Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) County Activities of Excellence program. All five recipients of the award were recognized during the December 1 general session of KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

The County Activities of Excellence competition was developed to identify and honor the outstanding, innovative programs or activities conducted at the county level that meet the overall goals of the organization. The program also encourages KFB members to share their ideas with others who may benefit or be able to replicate a successful program in their own county.

Bullitt County Farm Bureau was recognized for its involvement in the event “Meals to Locals”. A well-known chef prepared a five-course meal using all locally-raised products. They used white tablecloths and banquet style seating with soft music playing to enhance the atmosphere.

All of the profits went to court appointed special advocates, a local group that advocates for children that get caught up in the court system when their guardians are involved in court cases.
