With spring just around the corner, a diverse group of agriculture industry representatives will gather for this event to recognize the vital importance of agriculture in Ontario County and to honor agriculture leaders.
The evening begins with a social time to enjoy the delicious Club 86 hors d’oeuvres, milk punch served by the Ontario County Dairy Princess, Corrine Brown, and a chance to participate in a silent auction to benefit the 4-H Scholarship Fund. The banquet will follow with a buffet dinner, which will include a dessert table featuring Ontario County desserts (pies from Cindy's Pies and Monica's Pies) and local Upstate-Niagara Cooperative Inc. milk.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County celebrated 100 years in 2018. Nancy Anderson will present "100 Year Journey of Ontario County Cooperative Extension".
Awards for leadership, excellence, and innovation in agriculture will be presented at the banquet including the Rodney Lightfoote Agricultural Viability and Innovation Award for Ontario County, Jackie Kunes Outstanding Woman in Agriculture; Paul and Peg Zimmerman Outstanding Young Farmer; Ralph Jerome Scholarship and Farm Bureau Citizenship Scholarships.
