The report of .the secretary and treasurer was given by Mr. John Rissler, due to the absence of the secretary Mr. Robert MeGfry. The treasurers report showed an increase in the balance on hand over that of the previous year. The report of the secretary indicated that the Farm Bureau had partici paLed in many different activities during the year and that the in- fluence of the Farm Bureau had been felt in several different ways. It was pointed ou, t that several of the resolutions introduced by the Jefferson County resolutions com- mittee had been accepted and ap- proved by the state resolutions committee and were made a part of the state program of work for 1959. The following ladies were elec- fed, as members of the Farm Bur- eau Women's Committee: Mrs. Robert McGarry, Shenandoah Junction, Mrs. Lyle Tabb, Kear- neysville, Mrs. Forrest Boyer, Char los Town, Mrs. Ralph Renaud Shepherdstown, Mrs. W. E. Walker Harpers Ferry. Persons that had been a mem- ber for 20 years or more were pres anted certificates of membership in the West Virginia Farm Bur- eau 20 Year Club. Those present to receive their certi'fi,cates were J. E. Tabb, J. G. Fuss, J. J. Me- Garry, L. J. McDonald and F. M. Donley. Mrs. Lyle Tabb who was t~he state winner in 1958 in the Cus- tard Pie Baking Con:test was recog nized . The electric stove ,that had been awarded to her was on dis- play. The Harpers Ferry Band Boos ter's Club served a ,bountiful meal consisting of ham, vegetables, ap- ple sauce, pickles, milk and des- sert. This group always provides plen,ty of good food to satisfy any ones appetite. It looks like Jefferson County Farm Bureau is well on its way to a good year in 1959.
