JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – He has written books about politics, is a regular contributor to the Washington Examiner and appears on nationally syndicated programs like the Sean Hannity Show. The name Michael Barone is synonymous with politics and the Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is bringing him to Jefferson City October 29 for a special fundraiser.
Barone will speak at the first annual Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture Banquet Monday at Capitol Plaza Hotel. Proceeds will benefit the Foundation.
“Our Foundation promotes and educates people in a number of ways,” Blake Hurst, Missouri Farm Bureau president, said. “We sponsor a ‘Thank A Farmer’ Day every year to give people a chance to learn about how farmers supply a safe and reasonably priced food supply. We offer young people scholarship programs and build leadership for college students and for young farmers. More recently, we have taken on the Farm Bureau log home project in Jefferson City to give children and adults a sense of what agriculture was like in the mid-1800s.”
Hurst, a farmer from Atchison County, says the timing of Barone’s visit is perfect. “This is an important election for everyone, not just those in agriculture. With the banquet just one week away from when the polls open, Mr. Barone’s talk will be very worthwhile to hear.”
Tickets to the event are $125 per person. To order tickets or learn more call the Farm Bureau at 573-893-1402 or 573-893-1405.
