Around the district

It is always great to get out and around the communities of the 71st district.

This weekend I attended the Henry County Pork Producers Banquet. Thank you to the Ag/FFA Advisors from Cambridge, Kewanee and Geneseo for your input on Ag Education. Congratulations to all the scholarship winners. It was great to hear from Cheryl Walsh, President of the Illinois Pork Producers Association. Also, thank you to Henry County Pork and the event’s sponsors. Illinois is the 4th largest pork producing state and over 57,000 jobs are related to the industry.

We also had breakfast at the Clover Fire Department over the weekend. We toured the new buildings and enjoyed our breakfast with friends!

On Sunday I had the honor to participate in Michael Gooding’s Court of Honor as he was presented his Eagle Scout. Michael’s project was to repair and paint the park benches and picnic tables at Roseville park. He did a great job.

Congratulations Michael.
