The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee hosted its 2015 Fall Rally Oct. 30-31 in Duncan, Oklahoma.
Held at the Simmons Center in Duncan, nearly 100 women attended the two-day event featuring various speakers, workshops, entertainment and tours.
“It’s always fun and exciting when the women of Farm Bureau gather together,” said Kitty Beavers, OKFB WLC chairman. “The conference gives us all a chance to reconnect, learn and fellowship with our friends from across the state.”
During the opening lunch, the women heard from Tricia Howell of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services; Shawna McWaters, head of the OSU-OKC Division of Agriculture Technologies; and Amber Powers, Stephens County 4-H member.
Conference workshops featured legislative issues and State Question 777 from John Collision and LeeAnna McNally of OKFB public policy, floral arrangements from a local florist, and prevention of accidental poisoning from the Oklahoma Poison Control Center.
After a day full of activities, the women were entertained with a fashion show from 3 French Hens in Duncan and a concert by the Gospel Travelers.
On Saturday, the women toured the Duncan area, the Stephens County Historical Museum and the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. The conference ended with a chuck wagon lunch at the heritage center.
