Fred Whitford To Speak At Annual SWCD Meeting

The Dubois County Soil and Water Conservation District wants to invite all County residents to its 70th Annual Meeting at the Huntingburg Event Center on Thursday, February 4 at 6:30 PM EST.

This year’s featured speaker is Purdue Professor, Director of Purdue Pesticide Program, and author Fred Whitford.

Dr. Whitford’s presentation is sure to entertain! He will be speaking on the history of the Purdue Extension Service in Dubois County. His presentation will feature historical photos and stories from farms around the county, and maybe will include your grandparent’s farm!

The meeting agenda also includes the election of a County Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor. Greg Hoffman has decided to leave the Board of Supervisors after six years of service. Glenn Goeppner has agreed for his name to be on the ballot.

To be eligible to serve as an elected supervisor, the candidate must be of voting age and maintain his/her permanent residence in the district.

Supervisors are part of a governmental organization responsible for the wise management of Indiana’s soil and water resources and the environment in which we live. Serving on the County Soil and Water Conservation District Board is a great responsibility, but also is an opportunity for a person to make a difference in their county.

The District also takes nominations from the floor, so anyone interested in serving a 3-year term may place their name on the ballot that evening.

Once again the meeting is set for February 4th at 6:30 PM at the Huntingburg Event Center.
