Annual Members’ Meeting 2018

On December 4th, members of the farm gathered to receive a review of the 2018 season and update on plans for 2019.  Members participated in amending our by-laws and electing Directors.  Ideas were shared and an improved year-end financial statement was celebrated!  Three Directors were re-elected to our board- Adam Beck, President; Randy Quick, Vice President and Lyle Rathje.  Two familiar faces to the farm were welcomed to the board- Virginia Fay and Butch Preuit.  All eleven seats on the board are filled.  Our other Directors are Stan Schulz, Secretary; Janelle Medinger, Treasurer; Gabe Jaeger; Christian Walbrecht; Bobbie Bock-Itzen; Max Hoover.
