July 24-26 ˗ Central and Wheat State Joint Meeting in Branson, Missouri

chateauIn July of this year, the Central and Wheat State Districts met for their annual district conference in Branson at Chateau on the Lake for the first time.

Thursday evening started off the event with a relaxing picnic-style dinner along with time spent in the hospitality suite.

On Friday, attendees enjoyed a robust schedule of technical sessions covering topics from the wheat crop outlook to how to fix hydraulic hoses quickly and many topics in between.

Friday evening attendees enjoyed a more formal dinner buffet where the new officers of each district were introduced to attendees for the first time.

The service and facilities at this new location were wonderful.  We hope you will plan to join these two districts next year in Branson, Missouri!
