Message from Jason regarding the Banquet's speaker, Bill Albers as his topic, Korn Brothers, Ohio's Oldest Airport, 1911  This comes from an article in CAMERICA, 1953, entitled OHIO'S OLDEST AIRPORT, by Bernard J. Losh.   By the little farming community of Montra, near Jackson Center, O., is what is claimed to be the oldest airport in Ohio.  Look for an interesting topic presented by an equally interesting speaker. ========================================

December 2021 Meeting Recap:  The Cattlemen had a very productive meeting on the 14th. We discussed the upcoming banquet that is planned for March 1, 2022 and we also discussed 2022 plans such as updating our media presence. There has been an idea floating around for a while to join forces with the Shelby County Dairy Producers. The Dairy Producers attended the last meeting and we officially decided to begin that process. The upcoming calendar year 2022 will be a trial run for the combined group. Our first joint event will be the banquet. Upcoming meetings will discuss future combined events.

With the new joint organization we are also updating our media presence. Shari Wolf has graciously agreed to update our website and help us get a Facebook page started. In order to start these projects, we need to provide her content. The next time you are working cattle or simply doing daily chores, please take a few pictures or videos and send them our way. Or if you want to share an old photo, that's great too! This will be a great way to show the public what we do as cattlemen and to do what we do best, Promote Beef and Dairy!!  Shari has been working with Siegel’s Country Store regarding their website needs and will be great for us. If you want to send pictures or videos her way, her email is shari.wolf6771@centurylink.net  

The next meeting will be January 18th to further discuss the banquet and 2022 events. I look forward to seeing you there!

Thanks,
Jason Gibbs, President
