Farm Bureau from a Glance -  October 24, 2018

The 4C’s is our primetimers group that is always looking for new members. They are a group who meet each month for a program or tour.  The members are over the age of 65 and gather on the first Friday night of the month. In November they will be having Ken Groezinger come speak on his many times doing Ragbria.  The meeting will be held at our office on Friday, November 2nd at 6:30 p.m.   Following the program, the group enjoys social time and light refreshments. If you have interest in joining the group, or learning more just give our office a call at 815-244-3001.

Governor Rauner recently announced the release of funds for more than $14 million in capital improvement projects at state parks and recreation areas managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). This money was included in the FY19 bipartisan budget signed in June and will be used for capital improvements to parks statewide. The Mississippi Palisades park in Savanna will be getting over $467,000 in grants to improve the facilities. These updates will be a great addition to the park and will help increase tourism in the county.

Are you or someone you know ready to take your ag leadership skills to the next level? The Illinois Farm Bureau has a program to help with that. The Agricultural Leaders of Tomorrow (ALOT) provides participants with the tools they need to reach their full potential and emerge as a leader in agriculture. Whether they are on your county Farm Bureau board, county Farm Bureau committee, or a leader in agribusiness or your local community, they'll benefit from ALOT just as the over 1,150 previous graduates have.

In 2019, the program will be held close to our area. It is a three-year rotation, so if you miss out this year, it won’t be back till 2022! Applications are available online at www.ilfb.org from September 1 to November 15. For more information about the program, give me a call or email me, visit the Illinois Farm Bureau® website at www.ilfb.org under “Get Involved,” or contact the IFB Training and Development Department at 309-557-3943.
