Mark your calendars for the 2017 Friday Forum, Awards Banquet and Annual Meeting; to be held in Homer at Land’s End on November 3-4, 2017. Book your room by calling 907-235-0400 Ext 1 and reference the Alaska Farm Bureau to receive the group discount.
We are SUPER excited to announce that we’ll be joined by American Farm Bureau Federation President, “Zippy” Duvall! Zippy Duvall is a third-generation farmer from Georgia. In addition to a 400-head beef cow herd for which he grows his own hay, Duvall and his wife, Bonnie, also grow more than 750,000 broilers per year.
Along with our Friday Forum and Annual Meeting the Alaska Farm Bureau holds an auction to support our Bruce Willard Scholarship Fund. During the day on Friday is the silent auction, with an outcry auction Friday night at the Awards Banquet. We are so thankful for all the donations we receive for the auction! We are able to provide two scholarships in the amount of $2000.00 each year to students going into agriculture or natural resources fields. We are asking for donations for the 2017 Bruce Willard Scholarship Auction. You can send items to the Alaska Farm Bureau office at 37075 Nicholas View Lane, Soldotna, AK 99669, bring the items with you to the Friday Forum, or if it’s a large item, provide a certificate.
General members who want to participate in voting for directors or at the Annual Meeting need to make sure their dues are current. If you’re not sure, contact Amy at 907-252-5064 or [email protected].
