Ag Day breakfast committee co-chairmen
Larry Huelskoetter and Bill Sahs emphasize that the scholarship
program and breakfast for the community would not be possible
without the generous support of local businesses. Businesses
interested in participating as a sponsor are encouraged to contact
the chamber of commerce.
There is no charge to attend the
breakfast, but a reservation is required. RSVPs must be received
prior to March 10 and may be made by calling the chamber office,
