Temple named first member of OFB Eagle Club
Raymond Temple, of Garvin County, was recognized as the first inductee in the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Eagle Club during the OFB 71st Annual Convention Nov. 10, in Oklahoma City.
The distinction was created to recognize the member who recruits the most new members in a year, as membership is a key aspect of the organization. In addition to his duties on the Garvin County FB Board, Temple recruited 12 new members in 2012.
A Golden Eagle award has been presented to members in the past to recognize volunteer membership recruitment, but the Eagle Club was created to encourage others to follow Temple’s example of tremendous effort.
He received a traveling Golden Eagle trophy and a personalized OFB jacket.
Temple and his wife, Mary, have been OFB members for more than 40 years. They operate a cattle and hay farm near Elmore City.
