2021 Farmers Share Breakfast – May 1st

Please join us for the 2021 Farmers Share Breakfast on Saturday, May 1st from 8:00-10:00am. This year, the breakfast will be held at the McKean Community Building in Fredonia (6885 North St NW, Newark, OH 43055). Enjoy breakfast on location or take it to go. The cost of breakfast is a donation with all donations going to support Licking County 4-H members attending 4-H Summer Camp. We have been so fortunate for the support of the Licking County Farm Bureau and through those who donate through the breakfast. In 2019 this breakfast raised enough funds that we were able to take $30 of every member’s camp fee as well as additional amounts off for the children of Licking County Farm Bureau members and support several full and partial scholarships for 4-Hers to attend camp. Please consider stopping by for some breakfast. If you are unable to come to the breakfast, you can always make a donation to the Licking County Farm Bureau and designate it for the Farmers Share Breakfast.
