From Thursday Mar. 2 to Saturday, Mar. 4, several ladies from Madison County traveled to the Renaissance World Golf Village in St. Augustine to join in on the 2017 Florida Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Conference.
The agenda was very busy for their three days. They made several stops, touring different farms, including Barnes Cabbage Farm in
Hasting, Tater Farms (Potato Farm) and the UF/IFAS Research Farms.
During the Women’s Conference, some of the outstanding speakers included: Valerie McKee, Allyson Perry, Becky Sponholtz, Sherry Saylor and Jake White. They spoke on Leadership, Communication,
Organization, Agriculture Education and many other valuable key messages.
Madison County Farm Bureau came home with an Activity Award that was presented to Madison Women’s Chair, Ginny Paarlberg. This award was given to Madison for their exemplary efforts and participation in activities throughout this past year.
