Ag Week scheduled for county

Monday, February 25, 2008

Clay County will celebrate Ag Week March 13-14.

A 6:30 p.m., ribeye steak dinner program at the Clay County Fairgrounds in the 4-H Exhibit Hall will kick off the festivities.

The public is invited to the dinner, prepared and served by the Clay County Cattle Association.

The dinner is not just for area farmer, but rather gives an opportunity for all county residents to celebrate successes in agriculture.

Tickets are $5 and the cost will offset with sponsorship by First Financial Bank.

Tickets may be purchased at the Purdue Extension-Clay County office or any First Financial Bank branch in Clay County.

Those interested in attending should RSVP by calling 448-9041 by noon, Wednesday, March 12, if there is an interest in picking up a ticket at the door.

Those attending the dinner will be presented with speaker Donya Lester of the Purdue Agriculter Alumni Association. Lester serves as the executive secretary of the association. While working with the board, she has taken the annual association's Fish Fry to a new level with internationally known speakers. She and her husband, Dan Gwin, a farmer, reside in rural Montgomery County.

She is commonly found at the Indiana State Fair assisting with the Pioneer Village, Purdue Spring Fest and also speaks at numerous venues across the country.

On March 14, all Clay County fourth-graders will be participating in a field day with rotating stations. The theme involves all of the ingredients that go into pizza with a station where participants actually eat pizza that is made of agricultural products.

The Clay County Ag Day planning committee includes several individuals and businesses within the community.

For more information, call 448-9041.
