Ag Appreciation Banquet Scheduled for October 11th, 2019

The Annual Ag Appreciation Banquet will be held Friday, October 11 at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center.

The dinner is held in the fall each year to show appreciation to the agricultural community and industry and create network opportunities intended to increase understanding between the rural and city segments of our community regarding the challenges and opportunities faced by each other.

The funds raised during the event are distributed to local agricultural and youth agricultural organizations. Last year the funds were distributed to the Albany County 4-H, the Snowy Range FFA Chapter, the Rock Creek FFA Chapter and a scholarship was awarded within the College of Ag at the University of Wyoming for students who are from Albany County and have maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher. The support from Albany County businesses was instrumental in helping raise over $14,000.00 last year.
