Colorado Farm Bureau (CFB) honored 50-plus-year members at the Saturday evening banquet of their annual meeting held at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center on Nov. 21.
Several Phillips County Farm Bureau members were honored for their long-time contribution to CFB and their dedication to the organization and industry.
Those recognized were F. James Austin, 59 years; Adeline Coyne, 58 years; Marjorie From, 57 years; Forest McWilliams, 55 years; and Daisy Gemaehlich and Helen James, 52 years.
Support of the membership is needed for Farm Bureau to continue to advocate on behalf of the entire ag industry.
The annual CFB meeting highlighted important issues facing the agriculture industry, and policies for 2010 Colorado Farm Bureau were adopted.
