The annual "Evening in the Country" was held reently at Rudy & Julie Eggemeyer's Farm. The Board of Directors, Governmental Affairs & Public Relations Committee members invite the County Officials to a casual evening on a Randolph County Farm. Rudy shared some history of his farm, a meal was shared and the County Officials brought us up to date on what is happening in their positions. This is always a well received event that keeps the lines of communication open. We are grateful to all that gave a hand to help put this event on and to those who attended.
