Keynote speaker for the event is Chuck Hartke, director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Hartke will provide an overview of issues, information and the economic impact of agriculture in Illinois.

Bill Sahs, chairman of the Ag Day event, emphasizes that the scholarship program and breakfast for the community would not be possible without the generous support of local businesses. Sponsors will be listed on a keepsake coffee mug and recognized during the event through vendor tables, promotional giveaways and a PowerPoint slide presentation.

There is no charge to attend the breakfast, but a reservation is required. RSVPs must be received prior to 5 p.m. today (Monday) and may be made by calling (217) 735-2385.
