69th Annual Farmer Merchant Banquet – What a Night!

Nov 16, 2017

What a night it was one week ago! The 69th Annual Farmer Merchant Banquet was a hit as the agricultural community in Union County was in the spotlight. Farmers, ranchers and all others alike were showcased for their determination, perseverance and generosity to our County.

Awardees from all over Union County were more than deserving on that evening. From Cattleman of the Year, Good Steward Award to Ag Woman of the Year, all were phenomenal in their speeches to the attendees in appreciation.

Camille Hawkins, recipient of Ag Woman of the Year, brought the audience to a standing ovation as she spoke of the hardships and successes of being a farmer. For the first time, the Farmer Merchant Banquet was live-streamed on Facebook so everyone could watch these amazing people be awarded.

Here’s to our amazing agricultural community, and business community for showing their appreciation. Next year’s Farmer Merchant Banquet will be even bigger yet!
