The Highland County Farm Bureau and the Highland Soil and Water Conservation District will be hosting a unique drive-thru Annual Meeting at the Good News Gathering parking lot on September 19, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Farm Bureau ballot will be offered to members to vote for local, state and national proposed policies, Highland County Board Trustees and Delegates for the 2021 State Meeting. The Highland Soil and Water Conservation Districts’ Ballot allows for landowners to cast their vote to elect two Supervisors that will serve a three-year term to manage the conservation of soil, water and other natural resources throughout Highland County.
Attendees will also be able to pre-order fish from Jones Fish Hatcheries and have their fish delivered to the meeting. The fish are intended to stock farm ponds. Available fish include: Fathead Minnows, Golden Shiners, Triploid Grass Carp, largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Bluegill Sunfish, Redear Sunfish, Hybrid Bluegill, and Mosquitofish.
