Marin County Farm Bureau Annual Dinner

Last night we attended the Marin County Farm Bureau annual dinner.  There were around 116 people in attendance, which is a great turn out.  Our kids were two of the attendees.........they don't want to miss a thing!














The evening began with three members of our 4H club, leading the Pledge of Allegiance.....Logan Pomi, Bryce and Derrick Pomi {ages 8, 6 and 10}.  Great job 4Hers! Always good to give young kids the opportunity to stand on stage in front of a room full of adults and speak........just my opinion.

I found out Paige is a BIG ham and loves being on stage.


















CA Farm Bureau President, Paul Wenger attended the dinner and gave a very engaging speech to the crowd.  Speaking about some CA farm issues, and the important role social media plays for farmers by giving them the opportunity to share their stories.
