A message from Bob Rohrer, Manager, Cook County Farm Bureau…

On behalf of the Cook County Farm Bureau, I would like to publicly thank and honor the tremendous volunteers that serve our organization on a daily basis. We are privileged to have so many outstanding volunteers that serve on the Board of Directors, Team Structure, and in a multitude of programming activities and advisory roles throughout the year.

The many successes achieved by the Cook County Farm Bureau, the CCFB Foundation, the Ag Literacy program, and the Political Action Committee are a direct result of the commitment and energy of talented local farmers, farm owners, and agricultural supporters that give beyond your personal lives to further the cause of a greater and stronger agriculture in Cook County.

Sunday marked the beginning of National Volunteer Week. This week is a 40 year tradition of honoring the work in service of volunteers in the United States. Established by President Nixon in 1974, the week is about celebrating the contributions, time, knowledge, and expertise of the myriads of individuals that give themselves to the further meant of people and organizations in an effort to strengthen communities for today and tomorrow.

At Cook County Farm Bureau, we certainly mark this week with appreciation and the knowledge that we can’t do what we do without your involvement. Further, we recognize that volunteerism is neither always easy nor convenient and we appreciate the efforts that Cook County Farm Bureau volunteers make throughout the year to make this organization effective, essential, and relevant.

Thank you to all who contribute to a strong Cook County Farm Bureau!
