Upcoming Meetings:

Tuesday Nov. 14: LCFFA Annual Awards Banquet at Veterans Memorial Museum.  (Note: This is a week earlier than usual because the regular 3rd Tuesday would fall the same week as Thanksgiving).

At the February 21st Annual Meeting and Dinner, Michelle (Blake) Morgan was named 2017 Lewis County Tree Farmer of the Year.  Devon Powell and Luke Moerke were elected to fill the vacant positions of Vice President and Secretary and Rick Kuykendall and Chuck Higgins were re-elected to their board positions.
