To celebrate agriculture and honor local producers, local Ag Agencies and sponsors are celebrating National Agriculture Week by hosting an Agriculture Community Breakfast. The 2014 Breakfast will be held on Friday, March 21, at 8 a.m. at St John Lutheran Church in Oak Harbor. The cost for the all-you-can-eat scrambled egg, pancake and ham breakfast is $5. The event is not just for the agricultural community, but is open to all individuals and businesses that eat meat, fruit, vegetables and bread, items grown by farmers.
The featured speaker will be Bruce McPheron, Vice President of Agricultural Administration and Dean of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Proceeds from the breakfast go back into the agricultural community through various scholarships. These scholarships will be awarded on the 21 at the breakfast. For more information about the scholarships, call Kathy Booher at 419-898-3631. For tickets to the breakfast, contact the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District at 419-898-1595.
