Good Morning: I hope you have all had a good week. A few things to share today:
University of Minnesota Farm Family Recognition: All of the counties in our region have identified the families to be recognized in the 2011 Farm Family Recognition event. The state wide recognition event will be held Thursday, August 4 at Farmfest. In addition, many counties also have local recognition of their families at the county fair. The Marshall Regional Office coordinates the state wide recognition event and our office is communicating with the families. I will deliver the certificates for the local recognition to the County Office. Farm Family Recognition publicity will go out in mid-July. Additional details about the Farm Family Recognition program and the families being honored can be found at the Farm Family recognition website .
Here are the Families recognized in our region:
