Farmers' Almanac humor to be featured at ag breakfast       Send a link to a friend

[MARCH 15, 2005]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor its sixth annual Ag Day Breakfast on March 23 at 7 a.m. The event, to take place in the Laughlin Center on the campus of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary, is part of the National Agriculture Week observance.

Keynote speaker for the event is humorist Bob Farmer, representing the Farmers' Almanac. Like the almanac, Farmer's programs are laced with anecdotes, remedies and a liberal dose of humor. The nationally acclaimed speaker will bring the publication alive with his unique, down-home style of humorous storytelling. [For more information, see]

One of the highlights of the breakfast will be the announcement of this year's Ag Day Scholarship winners. Scholarships will be awarded to Logan County students who are studying toward careers in agriculture, particularly students interested in returning to Logan County.

Bill Sahs, chairman of the Chamber Ag Day Breakfast, emphasizes that the scholarship program and breakfast for the community would not be possible without the generous support of local businesses. Sponsors will be 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 March 18 and may be made by calling (217) 735-2385.
