Tuolumne County Farm Bureau Hosts Annual Dinner
Jamestown, CA...The Tuolumne County Farm Bureau is hosting its 68th Annual Dinner and Meeting on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Posse Clubhouse at 19130 Rawhide Road, Jamestown. This year’s sponsor is State Fund.
The event starts at 6 p.m. with the No Host Social and continues with BBQ Pork Tenderloin and Chicken Dinner at 7 p.m. provided by Mike Quinones of Lightening Quick Catering. Ticket are $25 with advance registration and $30 at the door. A fund raiser for the Ag in the Classroom program will be held at the event.
Guest speaker will be Anthony Francois, Senior Staff Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation. The slogan for Pacific Legal Foundation is “Celebrating 42 Years of Rescuing Liberty from Coast to Coast,” turning voices that wouldn’t be heard into voices that wouldn’t be silenced.
Pacific Legal Foundation was founded in Sacramento as America’s first freedom-based public interest legal organization. Drawing inspiration from then-Governor Ronald Reagan, several members of his senior staff left public service to establish Pacific Legal Foundation.
Anthony Francois joined Pacific Legal Foundation’s National Litigation Center in 2012. He previously worked with PLF as their California government affairs representative on all water issues. Pacific Legal Foundation represents agriculture issues before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The election of the 2016-2017 Board of Directors for the Tuolumne County Farm Bureau will take place at the Annual Dinner. Nominated to serve on the board are Terri Arington, Bob Brennan, Caitie Campodonico, Rachel Castongia, Jesse Cover, Shaun Crook, Rose Engler, Sasha Farkas, Ken Fleming, Bill Gaiser, Dick Gaiser, Chris Hammond, David Harris, Ron Peterson, Dave Pish, Zach Rehder, and Nathan Rosasco.
Tuolumne County Farm Bureau was established in 1947, representing the interests of the agricultural community and the rural way of life. The Farm Bureau volunteers represent agribusiness on county, state and national issues of importance to Tuolumne County agriculture. Tuolumne County Farm Bureau has been actively involved in dealing with the aftermath of the Rim Fire, the Ag Element of the General Plan, and issues surrounding the water needs of Tuolumne County.
Membership in the Tuolumne County Farm Bureau is available to those generating an income from agriculture as well as those supporting agriculture in the community.
