 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 ALAMANCE COUNTY AGRI-BUSINESS COMMITTEE HOSTS 37TH ANNUAL AGRICULTURE APPRECIATION BANQUET

 The Alamance County Agri-Business Committee recently hosted the 37th Annual Agriculture Appreciation Banquet on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, at Occasions Restaurant in Burlington. The event started many years ago as a way to show gratitude to the hard-working farm families in Alamance County.

The 2022 Service to Agriculture Award was presented to Kenneth Ingle and Family by Bill Kleiner, Director of the Alamance County Cooperative Extension. The 2022 Conservation Farm Family Award was presented to Charles Hursey by Brad Moore, Administrator of the Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation District, and by Roy Stanley, Chairman of Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation Board.

After the awards were presented, Vaughn Willoughby, President of the Alamance County Farm Bureau Board, addressed the attendees with special remarks about the agriculture industry. Following Mr. Willoughby was the entertainment of the evening, Alamance County’s own Buttermilk Creek bluegrass band.

The Agriculture Appreciation Banquet would not be possible without the Alamance County Agri-Business Committee Members and the sponsors that contribute and support the committee’s plan of work each year, which also includes the Farm-to-Table event held in the fall for 800+ 4th graders.
