Ag dinner honors Jack Stivers
RONAN — The Ronan Chamber of Commerce will celebrate local farmers and ranchers with their 43rd annual Agriculture Appreciation Dinner on March 24.
This year’s event will honor Jack Stivers of the MSU Agriculture Extension Office in Lake County. Following 32 years of service as an extension agent, Stivers retired Feb. 15. Ronan Chamber member, Katie Jo Elliott, said Stivers has been a huge force behind the appreciation dinner in prior years. “We thought it would be a really awesome thing to thank him for all his service to the community,” Elliott explained. “We’re honoring him as an advocate for agriculture in the community, and for all his hard work in Lake County.”
The dinner honoring ag producers in the area will be held at the Ronan Community Center with a social hour beginning at 6 p.m. and dinner starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Mountain West Cooperative, Westland Seed, and the MSU Extension Office in Ronan.
