Guernsey County Farm Bureau will have its annual pork chop dinner on Friday, April 26, at the Cassell Station Firehouse, Cambridge, with dinner served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Tickets are available from any Board of Trustee member, Nationwide Insurance Offices of Gene Moore and Cambridge Insurance Group, both in Cambridge or the Farm Bureau office in Barnesville, 740-425-3681. Tickets are advance sale only and the deadline for purchase is Friday, April 19.
The menu includes grilled pork chops, red skinned potatoes, green beans, applesauce, rolls, beverage and ice cream. Ticket prices are $8 for Farm Bureau members, $10 for non-members, and $5 for children under the age of 10.
As in previous years, a silent auction will be hosted with numerous items donated by area businesses and individuals made available to bid on. All proceeds from the silent auction will go to the Guernsey County Farm Bureau Scholarship Fund. Two scholarships, in the amount of $500 each are awarded every year to a child of a Guernsey County Farm Bureau member.
There will be several displays by area agencies such as Nationwide Insurance, Agriculture and County agencies and Farm Bureau member businesses. The information tables will be available throughout the dinner and several will offer door prizes. The Safety Seminar will be held at 6 p.m. for those interested, and all members on Workers’ Compensation Group Rating with Farm Bureau are encouraged to attend.
Farm Bureau member benefit information will be showcased with signs available to all paid members to post on their property for the $2500 Reward program. Vicki Wilson, President of Guernsey County Farm Bureau encourages all members to post their property.
Wilson said," With the increase in criminal activity in our county it is important to take all of the precautions we can, especially in our rural areas."
Plan to stop by and pick up signs at the dinner. The $2500 reward can be paid to both Farm Bureau members and non-members for providing information leading to the arrest and conviction for arson, malicious injury to property, burglary or other felonies committed on a member’s property when the $2500 reward sign is posted. The reward is also paid for the arrest and conviction of persons stealing a member’s car, truck, tractor or other self propelled equipment from their property.
