Thank-You Farmers!

grainrush sept222014

Last week marked the final dinner in the field for local farmers when it came to Grain Rush 2014.  It was a lot of fun the past few weeks visiting those hard working producers in the area, and I know many of them are happy to be hitting the fields once again with all this gorgeous weather! 

 

Thanks to all our sponsors who made it possible and Seasons Family Restaurant for providing the delicious food.  As always a huge thank you on behalf of CFRY to all the farmers in the prairies who work so hard!  See you next year!
