Members and Friends Invited to Bring Their Appetites and Concerns to the 2017 AFR Summer BBQ

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:14:46 CDT

Members and Friends Invited to Bring Their Appetites and Concerns to the 2017 AFR Summer BBQ AFR members are invited to bring their friends, an appetite and a list of issues they want to discuss to a series of informal barbecues scheduled for Aug. 21-29 in various locations across Oklahoma.


"We want to use this informal, relaxed atmosphere to learn the critical issues on the minds of Oklahoma farmers and ranchers," AFR President Terry Detrick, said.


Some of the issues anticipated to be discussed include the new federal farm bill, the current agriculture economy, tax increases and the state's continuing budget challenges.


"We'll talk about all of these issues," Detrick said, "and I am sure the weather will also be a frequent topic, as it is every time you get farmers and ranchers together."


Detrick added, the issues discussed will lead to new and improved policies for the state's oldest farm organization.


"The thoughts and ideas surfaced at these barbecues will be used by our members to formulate policies to be voted on at our annual convention in February," Detrick said. "These policies are important as they will guide our organization throughout the coming year."


Dinner will be served promptly at 6 p.m. followed by issue discussion. The schedule for the August meetings includes the following venues:


- Monday, Aug. 21, Hampton Inn & Suites, Guthrie

- Tuesday, Aug. 22, Woodward County Fairgrounds, Woodward

- Thursday, Aug. 24, Hugo Kiamichi Technology Center, Hugo

- Monday, Aug. 28, Medicine Park Community Center, Medicine Park

- Tuesday, Aug. 29, Wagoner Civic Center, Wagoner.


For more information or to RSVP, please contact Bethany Andrews at (405) 218-5531.
