The calender has turned over to March and every day has the hope of warmer weather. Snow can even melt when the air temperature is under freezing if the sun is out. March does not mean I’m any less busy.
I was just at the monthly Farm Bureau meeting as we talked about activities for the month. This is going to be a busy one.
March 12 is our communities Farm and Home show. Since I on the committee that is sponsoring it, I’ll be there to set up and tear down. I’ll also be manning a booth for the Farm Bureau there.
March 15 we join other county Farm Bureau’s as we go to St. Paul for our day talking to legislators. With so few people still tied to the farm it becomes even more important to make our presence felt. There are several groups who are trying to change the way that food is grown in the U.S. and if we don’t keep telling our story, they’ll tell a story that is not us. If you can join us please contact me for information.
We have a major statewide membership drive planned for later this month. We have several incentives for members to get out and recruit, including the chance to go to a Twins game. If you a wondering what Farm Bureau can do for you, i’d like to talk to you.
That’s just the Farm Bureau things I have. I also have a sump pump to put into the basement along with a tile line to lay, play practice, perhaps snow removal and hopefully if the snow goes away, some wood to cut for next winter. Then there are a few church meetings and our barbershop chorus practice. Hmm. Guess I’d better get going.
