National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

WE DID IT… Thank you to all the amazing community members, our family and friends that stopped up and packed a Farmer Appreciation Bag. We reached our goal in packing 800 bags. It was a beautiful day, to see all the booths around the square. We live in a great town!

The question was asked , ” Why are you packing 800 Farmer Appreciation Bags tomorrow”? This video speaks volumes to the current state in our Agriculture Community.  Crisis is increasing all across our state.
