More than 70 women gathered for the 2021 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee Fall Conference Aug. 27 and 28 at the Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center in Edmond.
The two-day conference featured educational sessions, crafts, games and a trade show. Members learned about Oklahoma Agritourism, Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom, OKFB safety services, sharing the story of agriculture and bridging the gap between generations within the organization.
The women heard from leaders of the organization including OKFB President Rodd Moesel, OKFB District 2 Director Monte Tucker and OKFB Young Farmers and Ranchers committee member Brittany Hukill.
Through a silent auction, WLC members raised more than $1,600 for the OKFB Legal Foundation, which works to serve farmers and ranchers through engaging in public interest litigation, researching ag and rural legal issues.
Women also created blankets to be donated to the Homeless Alliance of Oklahoma City, in addition to donating used eyeglasses to the Lions Club.
