  The HCFB Promotion & Education Committee, chaired by Dianne Elkins, was honored with the GFB 3rd District Outstanding Promotion & Education Award.  The Georgia Farm Bureau 3rd District includes 14 counties in east Georgia.

  The committee planned and conducted a Farmer Appreciation Dinner in conjunction with Clayton County Farm Bureau. The event, designed to encourage farmers to get involved in Farm Bureau activities, was held at the Locust Grove Event Center and drew more than 250 people from the two counties.   They also visited eight schools, reaching 650 children to educate them about agriculture in Henry County.  They also sponsored an Art Contest and three children were awarded certificates and a $25.00 Gift Card. 

  Georgia Farm Bureau, the state’s largest general farm organization, is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2012. The organization has 158 county offices. Its volunteer members actively participate in local, district and state activities that promote agriculture awareness to their non-farming neighbors. GFB also has 20 commodity advisory committees that give the organization input on issues pertinent to the major commodities grown in Georgia.
