Marin County Farm Bureau V.I.P. Luncheon

As many of you already know, Dominic is the current President of Marin County Farm Bureau and yesterday the organization held it's annual V.I.P. Luncheon.  The attendees usually include; all of our elected representatives, many of our county department heads, planning commissioners and planning staff and many other agriculture organizations.  This is an opportunity to bring the ranchers and all of our elected representatives together to get to know each other a little better on a more personal level.

Each year this luncheon is hosted on a Marin County ranch.  This year it was at the Pomi Ranch {aka: deer camp}.  By holding the event at a local ranch, our elected representatives can experience first hand where we, as ranchers live and the type of lifestyles we lead with the hopes of them better understanding where we're coming from when we speak on county and state issues.

Here's a glimpse of how the luncheon progressed.....

Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey was one of the first to arrive at noon.

The tables were set and lunch was ready by 12:30.

Included on the menu was barbecued tri tip.

Fellow rancher, Jeff Rowley, donated his time to cook for the day.

My father-in-law, George, made his creamy mushroom saffron risotto for the crowd.  So Good.  We also had a nice, fresh green salad as well.
