Today's sessions were held in the Church of the Risen Savior off County Road 42 in Apple Valley, and I was especially pleased to do my Farm Heritage program at the 9:30 AM session.
Since over 75 percent of the audience members had either farmed or grown up on a farm, they responded warmly to my program.
They listened intently, smiled and nodded as my words hit familiar notes, asked questions after the show, and bought some books.
I especially like that many of them expressed that they agreed we need to preserve our farm heritage by telling our stories.
