Farm City Breakfast is This Saturday
Some good eating this Saturday as the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and the Daviess County Farm Bureau presents the 34th Annual Farm City Breakfast.
A panel of local farmers and businessmen will discuss challenges and opportunities within Daviess County at 7:30 am at Apollo High School.
The Farm City Humanitarian Award will be presented to Rod Kuegel, local farmer and former Chairman of the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation.
Also at the breakfast, hosted by the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and the Daviess County Farm Bureau will be Malcolm Bryant, local developer and CEO of the Malcolm Bryant Corporation, and Bill Kurtz, owner of Kurtz Auction and Realty Company.
They will participate in a panel sharing opportunities and challenges for rural and urban development in Daviess County.
Kugel was chosen to receive the Farm City Humanitarian Award because he has distinguished himself through leadership, family activities, community and civic service.
The winner is nominated and selected by the Agriculture Committee of the Chamber.
“We are excited about the panel, as well as the presentation of the Humanitarian Award. It should be a special event, with the panel of local investors as well as a very deserving individual to present the Humanitarian Award to. Also, we’ve changed the format a bit to limit the time commitment of community members who come out for it,”
said Gavin C. Roberts, 2013 Chairman of the Chamber Board and local Kentucky Farm Bureau Agent.
Billed as the best breakfast in Daviess County, the menu features bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, cinnamon rolls, milk, orange juice and more provided by local distributors and Apollo High School. Tickets to the breakfast are $6 and can be purchased at the Chamber at 200 East 3rd Street, the Farm Bureau office at 3329 Wathens Crossing, or online. The breakfast is sponsored by area farmers and local businesses, and is intended to bring together the rural and city community for a common event.
