This annual picnic event gives Farm Bureau an opportunity to express appreciation to those who hold office, for the work they do on behalf of farmers and agriculture in general.  The elected officials were given the opportunity to speak on subjects that were of interest and concern to those present.

Following the meal, President Jay Campbell conducted the meeting.  This year marks the 100th anniversary of Farm Bureau in Kentucky.  Plans were discussed to have the KY Farm Bureau’s 1919 Model T pickup in the Tobacco Festival Parade.  The women’s committee is making plans to promote this anniversary by compiling pictures of past presidents.  They are also planning a special campaign on Facebook to showcase the board members and their families leading up to the annual meeting in September.  Preliminary plans were made for the FB annual meeting scheduled for 6:00 p.m. Sept 7th at the Logan County Extension Office.
