Businesses encouraged to sponsor ag event          Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 1, 2007]  The Logan County Ag Day Breakfast is scheduled to take place on the first day of spring, March 21, at 7 a.m. in the Laughlin Center on the campus of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary. The event, in conjunction with National Ag Day, celebrates the role and creates an awareness of agriculture in America.

In addition to a delicious farmer-style breakfast catered by Guzzardo's, keynote speaker Dick Burns will dish up big helpings of wit and humor as he describes life-on-the-farm experiences. The program will also include updates and information on the latest agriculture news, legislative issues and forecasts.

The highlight of the annual gathering of agriculture and business leaders is to award scholarships to area students pursuing degrees that will lead to careers in ag-related fields. This scholarship program has awarded over $25,000 to Logan County students over the past seven years.
