Kennebec County Legislative Reception Tuesday March 24th at 4:30pm-7:30pm, Senator Inn, Augusta. – This is one of the two major events where you have a chance to tell legislators how you feel about the laws and rules that impact you, and what you want/don’t want the State to do to support your farm business. We hope you or a family member will take the time to come to this important event.
We will have a table to showcase our farms. If you have something you want to display, please contact John Harker at 713-3055 before March 1st to make arrangements.
If you plan to come, please RSVP Kerry Casey at 458-2482 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 12th so we can plan.
A lot is going on in the legislature that may impact your business. Farm Bureau has been there for you. If you want updates, contact the Main office!
Hope to see you on the 24th!
