County Spotlight Fall 2016
Highlighted on this page are winners of the 2015 Impact Awards, which recognize county Farm Bureaus for programs and events of significant impact or that increase Farm Bureau’s influence or clout.
Fulton County was one of the winners of the Impact Award in the “influential organization” category for a simple but effective idea: a toolshed meeting with Sen. Joe Donnelly.
The meeting was held in August 2015 at the farm of Fulton County Farm Bureau board members Dennis and Linda Burton, and topics included GMO labeling, the EPA’s “Waters of the U.S.” ruling and trade. Approximately 35 people attended, and in addition to Donnelly, the invitation list included business leaders, political office holders and local media representatives.
