Farm Bureau Dinner A Success

Sponsored by:

Murphys, CA — The Calaveras County Farm Bureau celebrated its annual dinner and auction Saturday with a good old fashioned barbecue.

Brice Station Vineyards hosted the event, which is the bureau´s largest fundraiser of the year.

50 or 60 farm bureau members and supporters took part in the festivities.

Bureau President Steve Kafka led the meeting portion of the night and talked about the bureau´s accomplishments over the last year.

The auction was officiated by Mark Fischer, who recently won Rookie of the Year at the World Livestock Auctioneer Championship.

A high selling item of the night was a homemade pie donated by Eloise Fischer Spence, which netted $600.

The money will go towards scholarships to be awarded next year. Earlier this year the bureau gave out six scholarships to deserving students.
