Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Team Feeds and Talks with Legislators
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Team made the most of their opportunity Tuesday to feed state legislators and talk with them about issues important to Oklahoma's farmers and ranchers. Kitty Beavers from Stephens County leads the group and told Oklahoma Farm Report's Ron Hays that the annual Farm City Week Luncheon has become quite a tradition at the capitol.


"Yes, it is. It is one of the most important projects we do all year. We come up here and we bring food--good, country food-and all of our women from all over the state bring in food and serve all of our legislators and their staffs and we get to know them and we want to know we have a part in this capitol, that we are interested in everything that they do and we want them to know it. And this is one way that we show our appreciation to them."


Beavers said their annual potluck-style luncheon serves over 600 people.


"Our women's committees and leadership teams from all over the state, they bring different things. Like we have one group comes from the Fairview area that brings like 32 dozen deviled eggs. We have women that bring in all kinds of salads. So, from all over the state, they come and participate."


She said the luncheon is an essential part of creating a comfortable atmosphere for visits with lawmakers.


"I think it's great because when we go to speak with them they always say, 'Your dinner is one of the most important things we like to go to.' And they remember it. And they know where we're coming from, so I think it's great."
