Keeping Up with Kaylen

This Week In The Office

          I have begun calling our current Farm Bureau members to confirm their contact information and update anything missing. I have enjoyed talking to the members thus far. This project will most likely take me the majority summer to complete as I have a very extensive list to call. I have been helping the Stephenson Conservation and Agriculture Partners Education Coordinator, Amy Schultz, come up with ideas for “Ag Bags”. The goal is to distribute the “Ag Bags” every week to the day cares on our list. If you know of a day care that would like to get them, have them contact Amy at [email protected]


              Huge thank you to everyone who came out last Saturday to donate blood! We had 28 donors that came out to the event with 9 new donors. There was 13,500 ml of blood donated

which equals 81 lives saved! I hope everyone enjoyed their delicious Prairie Farms ice cream. I took home a container of Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip and it’s almost gone!



Recipe of the Week


          Taffy Apple Salad
