I just got the confirmation that there will be three special guests at the first Farmer's Appreciation Day on Saturday, June 11. The Rice County Dairy Princess Emily Trcka will be there along with Rice County Dairy Maids Emma Kuball and Jacy Saemrow. After all, June is Dairy Month so we wanted to make sure we included a salute to the dairy industry. The Rice County American Dairy Association will have a booth there too with information, education materials and some games for the kids.

Remember the first Farmer's Appreciation Day will be from 8AM to noon at the Rice County Fairgrounds in Faribault. It will begin with a free breakfast just like in the past. With the event being moved to a Saturday morning instead of a weekday, we are hoping more people can attend. Also moving to the Rice County Fairgrounds, we have a lot more space for activities. In addition there are buildings to move into in case the weather does not cooperate! Be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, June 11.
