KWOA Award Presented to HCFB Board

 

The Kentucky Woodland Owners Association (KWOA) presented an outstanding service award plaque to Harlan County Farm Bureau Board of Directors. On August 15 at the Harlan County Farm Bureau Annual Picnic held at the Frank Couch building, Frank Hicks, President of the KWOA, presented this award to Don Miniard, president of Harlan County Farm Bureau. This award recognized the Board of Directors' hard work in promoting good forest management in Harlan and surrounding counties. Hicks said, “This is not an annual award that we would give away. Our association is aware of the work that the HCFB board has been doing. They have helped the local woodland owner have a better understanding about forestry development and management.” The KWOA’s mission is to promote economically and environmentally sound forest management and advance the forestry skills of Kentucky woodland owners.
