National Agriculture Day
In celebration of National Agriculture Day on March 18, the Wayne/Pike Farm Bureau presented gift baskets to two babies born that day at Wayne Memorial Hospital. Parents of Miriam Rose, Amy and Paul Smith, accepted a basket containing various food products such as apples, cheese, and crackers, as well as a crocheted baby outfit. “These items serve as a reminder that agriculture plays an essential role in providing the necessities of everyday life,” said Joyce Carson, Farm Bureau. “From the food we eat to the clothing we wear, a farmer is responsible for providing it.”
