Please mark your calendars to join us in celebrating our agricultural heritage! The 55th annual Watauga County Farm City Banquet will be held on Sunday, August 15th, at the Historic Blair Farm in Boone from 1:00-6:00 p.m. Free exhibits, music, and family fun & games will be available all afternoon. An awards ceremony will be held at 4:00 pm, followed by a “local foods” dinner at 5:00. The theme for the 2010 Farm City Celebration is “Growing Youth, Growing Agriculture” as we also celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We are currently accepting nominations to honor individuals for their contributions to our community and agriculture—and we need your help! Please nominate outstanding people that YOU know have made a positive impact on youth, agriculture, and our community.
Completed applications can be mailed or dropped of to the Extension Center or e-mailed to Kathy_Lee@ncsu.edu by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 16, 2010. Please pass along this information to others who may be interested.
