Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Rotary members honored local farmers and those who work in agriculture related jobs.  Approximately 42 club members and special guests were in attendance.

    Guest speaker for the evening was Aaron Putze, Director of Communications and External Relations for the Iowa Soybean Association.  Putze began his program with some statistics of Iowa soybean production. Iowa is 2nd in soybean production, 1st in corn production, and 1st in egg production, in the world.  In Iowa, 86% of the land is used for growing crops, and Iowa has the 10th best soil for growing in the world.  

    Grinnell Rotary members thank the farmers for their hard work, and for taking time in their busy schedules to attend this special meeting.

    Grinnell Rotary meets every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the West Side Family Restaurant.
