The Logan County farm Bureau Federation recently held their summer picnic at the Russellville City Park. Several elected officials and a staff representative were in attendance. This annual event gives Farm Bureau an opportunity to express their appreciation to those who hold office for the work they do on behalf of farmers.
Bradley and Frances Brown served grilled ribeye steak sandwiches to complement the potluck meal.
Following the meal, president Daniel Gaston conducted the regular Farm Bureau business meeting. The 2010 Farm Safety Day was a great success. Nine Logan County Young Farmers will attend the Summer Outing to be held in Ashland. Nine members will attend the District 4 Summer Meeting at Barren River State Park on July 26. The District 4 women’s planning meeting will be held August 13 at Chaney’s Dairy Barn in Bowling Green. August 26 is Farm Bureau Day at the Kentucky State Fair.
