Polk October Report

Posted on: October 11th, 2013

Polk County Women for Agriculture met in August at the Polk Co. Fair right before the Youth Livestock Auction.  We added $500. from the PCWA Treasury to the Auction pool we sponsor for donors. Suzanne Burbank and Jeree Mulkey handled the bidding and finances and we ended up spending $1,457. on a pig, a lamb, and some chickens.

Members worked at the OWA State Fair booth. Also, we sent a letter to the editor to the Statesman thanking Salem Mayor Anna Peterson for her focus on agriculture as an economic strength of our region.
We were delighted with a successful Constitutional Essay Contest and plan on continuing this next year with a different question.

Rain and wind on September 28th compelled Polk County Women for Agriculture to cancel our booth at the Independence Hop and Heritage Festival.

We nominated Elmer and Geraldine Stoller for the Diamond Pioneer Award which they will receive Oct. 2.  The Stoller family were turkey growers for many years.  Now their son grows crops and has a stand on Hwy 22 selling corn and other wonderful produce.
