[February 12, 2009]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce Ag Day Breakfast is scheduled for March 19 at 7 a.m. at Lincoln Christian College and Seminary's Laughlin Center. An annual event celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the breakfast recognizes the economic impact of agriculture in Logan County and provides a networking environment for both agriculture and business leaders. It is a free event for the community.

DonutsThe program will include an informational ag update from John Hartman of Farm Credit Services, entertainment by comedian Steve Caminiti and the awarding of ag scholarships. 

During the past decade, $41,000 has been awarded in scholarships to high school seniors and college freshman pursing an education in the agriculture-related fields.

"The chamber's ag committee feels that the key to the future of agriculture in Logan County is to invest in these students," said Michael Turner, ag committee chairman. 

The event is hosted by the chamber's ag committee and made possible by local business sponsors.

The breakfast will be prepared by Guzzardo's Catering.

Anyone interested in attending may make reservations by calling 217-735-2385. 

The annual breakfast directly reflects the mission of the chamber's ag committee to enhance the Logan County economy by strengthening ag and business relationships, exploring and implementing value-added opportunities, developing and marketing agricultural tourism attractions, and encouraging natural resource management. The breakfast is an important part of the mission of the chamber to serve the membership through a commitment to the economic prosperity of Lincoln and Logan County.
