Hats Off to Ag!

  • Heavy appetizers and cash bar
  • Ag speaker Elaine Kub, from the Roscoe/Ipswich area, will speak about commodity market insights, the farm bill, farmer profitability and more. She will answer questions and be available to sign her book Mastering the Grain Markets: How Profits are Really Made, which will be available for purchase.

  • Entertainment after at the free Downtown Summer Concert featuring the Chad Cooke Band from Texas. Find out more here.
