Interested in learning how Farm Bureau can help you? The public is invited to attend “Farm Bureau Fest” on Feb. 6 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The free event will feature networking opportunities, informational seminars and a complimentary lunch.
“Folks considering joining Farm Bureau are encouraged to come to the event and get more information on how the organization works,” said Zach Taylor, Delaware County Farm Bureau president. “It’s a fun way to kick the tires, meet members and learn about the benefits of membership.”
During the event, attendees can join sessions for updates on a variety of topics including:
• Safety training with an update on the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Participants can attend at least one safety session to meet your workers’ compensation group rating requirement for the year, organizers say.
• Membership discussion covering benefits and services.
• Public policy — with a water quality update, Current Agricultural Use Value, 2016 priority issues, and energy issues and pipeline construction update.
Members bringing a new member will both receive a special gift. Supervised children’s activities will be available, featuring games, agriculture activities and a live animal presentation from the Columbus Zoo.
The event will be at Tri Rivers Career Center, 2222 Marion-Mount Gilead Road, Marion, and will be hosted by Crawford, Delaware, Marion, Morrow, Richland and Wyandot counties’ Farm Bureaus. Attendance is free but registration is required. The deadline to register is Jan. 29. Participation at a membership session is required to receive a lunch ticket.
