2017 Henderson County Annual Meeting and Picnic

 

Henderson County Farm Bureau's Annual Meeting and Picnic hosted over 200 guests on July 29, 2017. Several elected officials as well as state congressional representative James Comer spoke to the group indicating how important Farm Bureau is to the community. The attendees were also treated to a delicious BBQ dinner. The Outstanding Farm Bureau Youth (OFBY) contest and Youth Variety Show was highlighted during the meeting. Three high school students participated in the OFBY speech contest.  Male and female first place awards were given to Bailey Holmes and Jason Kruse; an outstanding speech also given by Kate McIndoo. Four young people competed in the variety show with first place awarded to Jada Townsend for performance of Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling in Love” as she accompanied herself on the keyboard. Second place was awarded to Maggie Hollis for her vocal selection with interludes of her “fiddling.”  Third place went to Brooklynn Meuth for her performance of Sugarland’s “Stay.”  Although she didn’t place, 5-year old Isabella Carver warmed our hearts with her animated and talented performance of “Tomorrow” from the movie, “Annie.” Several gift cards were given out as door prizes along with the grand price of a television set. The annual meeting and picnic is held each year on the last Saturday in July.
