Executive Address – April 2014

Happy April!  The Madera County Farm Bureau is buzzing along –working for you, our members!  This month is an incredibly important month for the Farm Bureau staff, as we round out our annual member safety trainings for the year, topped off with our annual scholarship fundraising event on May 4th, at Appellation California.
The Farm Bureau is honored to award scholarships each year to deserving students who have dedicated their higher education to a career in agriculture.  We hope that you will join us to make the event special and even more valuable towards benefitting youth in our community.
Our big safety training is being held on April 15th and will cover broad topics for employers and employees such as fumigant safety, laws and regulations, along with general operational safety in the workplace.  Its’ not too late to sign up, at www.maderafb.com or you can always ring the office!
We hope to see all of you very soon at one of our events, the County Board of Supervisors, or other local planning activity.  Enjoy your spring –it will be brief!
