MIAMI COUNTY — Miami County Farm Bureau hosted their third Annual Farmers and 4-H Breakfast on April 7, at the Miami County Fairgrounds.

There was a great turnout, with more than 150 people. Dannon donated the yogurt, milk was purchased from Prairie Farms, and the sausage was purchased from Haren’s Market. This year’s sponsors included the Graves-Fearon Nationwide Agency, Batdorf’s Red Barn Catering, Miami County Soil and Water Conservation District, Ebbert’s Feed, R.D Holder Oil, Kroger-Troy, and the Miami County Fair.

Miami County Farm Bureau donated $450 to the county 4-H program. “We had many 4-H clubs and other volunteers join us to help serve during the breakfast, and their support was fantastic,” said Melinda Lee, organization director for Miami County. “We could not hold this event without the gracious volunteers.”

Dan Sturgill, committee chair for the Farmers and 4-H Breakfast says, “Many thanks to all who volunteered, donated items, and enjoyed pancakes. It is inspiring to see new and old friends come together, have fun, and make a difference for our 4-H program. Attendance was up, and we’ll do it all again in 2019.”
