Oklahoma Farm Bureau women from across the state gathered for the annual Women’s Leadership Committee Conference April 21-22 at the POSTOAK Lodge in Tulsa.
The more than 90 attendees had the opportunity attend breakout sessions, complete two community service projects, participate in a silent auction and hear from Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell’s Chief of Staff Kirby Smith and OKFB Executive Director Thad Doye.
Breakout session topics included wills and trusts, dam safety, the WLC Advocacy Program, drought recovery, making life accessible to all Oklahomans, agriculture health and wellness, integrating beef into diets, leadership development and yoga.
Farm Bureau women donated items to be included in the silent auction, which raised more than $2,600, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Members created more than 25 lap blankets for veterans at the Claremore Veterans Center. Additionally, members packed meals to deliver to seniors in their counties.
Tulsa County Farm Bureau women provided snack bags to attendees welcoming them to Tulsa.
