Franklin County Hosting Annual Summer Outing
Come One, Come All!
Franklin County Farm Bureau is inviting you to the Annual Summer Outing, which will be held July 22nd at the Forster-Ricardo farm in New Vineyard. Frank and Lyn have reclaimed some of the fields and have incorporated a number of antiques into their home. Frank has badminton and a horseshoe pit for those wanting to test their skills. There is a gazebo with a man-made pond nearby, which is an ideal area for socializing with friends old or new.
Frank has state of the art grills and is a pro at turning out beef, pork and chicken along with hamburgers and hot dogs. The meal will be served between 12 and12:30, but plan to come early to tour the farm and visit. This will be a great time to renew acquaintances, make new friends and learn more about Farm Bureau in this county. Those attending may bring fruit, a salad or dessert to share but this is not mandatory, but please do bring a chair to sit on! Please call Frank or Lyn, 652-2920, by July 16th if you plan to attend so Frank can have an idea of how much meat to cook.
