Representatives from Hardin County Farm Bureau Attended the 2017 Congressional Tour

 

Each year, Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) members make their way to Washington, D.C. to meet with federal legislators, hear from American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) policy experts and show their support for agriculture during the annual Congressional Tour.

This year, nearly 300 members made the trip to Washington, D.C. to continue the organization’s grassroots policy development process and present their 2017 national priority issues to the Kentucky federal legislative delegation.

Eight members of Hardin County Farm Bureau attended this year's Congressional Tour.

 

Front Row: Larry Jaggers II (President), Congressman Brett Guthrie, Lisa Thomas, Rita Wooden, Steve Wooden (Sec/Treasurer).  Second Row: Richard Preston (Vice-President) and Greg Thomas. Larry Thomas also attended but is not pictured.
