Rural Banquet Marks 50 years

The Agribusiness Committee of the Columbus Area Chamber hits a milestone this year at the annual Rural Recognition Banquet on March 27th.  2018 marks 50 years of celebrating agriculture through the Rural Recognition Banquet!

This year’s banquet will be unique in light of this milestone.  The committee is developing historical displays honoring 50 years of progress in local agriculture. They will be honoring past award-winners and extending an invitation to all those past honorees to join in celebrating a half-century of this event.  The meal will be unique as well, featuring foods all produced within 100 miles of Columbus…celebrating our heritage as the breadbasket of the world.

Doors open at 6:00pm and the dinner begins at 6:30pm at Platte County Ag Park on the 27th.  Current and retired ag producers enjoy complimentary tickets, courtesy of the sponsorship of the Columbus business community.  General admission tickets are $25.  You may contact the Chamber office at 402-564-2769 or to get tickets.
