Farm Bureau News 1929

Lawrence County Farm News November 13, 1929 

400 members of the Lawrence County Farm Bureau attended the annual meeting held at the Bridgeport High School. On account of increased membership the meeting and dinner were more difficult than usual to handle. The preparation of food and serving 400 guests was a large order but it was carried out with precision and dispatch by the household science department of the high school.

The following members were elected from their respective townships: HO Tedford, Russell; WB Fitch, Bond, Edwin F Schrader, Lukin, John P Fearheiley, Petty; Omer Hossel, Christy; John Siegel, Denison; Loy Funk, Allison, Harley R Neal, Lawrence; WE Griggs, Bridgeport.

We are looking for photos of local farm scenes, farm implements, artifacts....anything to help us tell the story of the history of Farming in Lawrence County.  If you have anything you think might help, see a member of the Society.
