For some reason I have gotten into a habit of writing the year as 2019. I don’t know if it is because the year has flown or I am just ready for it to be over! But there is still plenty of 2018 left.

Now that all the craziness of summer is over, I will be starting to work on all the projects and plans for 2019 and the 100th Anniversary of the Carroll County Farm Bureau. If you have any information on agriculture in Carroll County in the early 1900’s or any info on Farm Bureau, please let me know.

Baseball season for the Cubs’ has unfortunately ended.  Prior to the end of the season I had already received information in regards to purchasing tickets for next season for a group outing. In looking at dates and options, my question is would you prefer to go to Wrigley or Milwaukee? This past year I had some say they would prefer to go to Wrigley instead of Milwaukee so they didn’t book with us. While I know we had some who prefer Milwaukee.
