STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) - It may be 16 months away, but there are deadlines coming up for the 2014 Wisconsin Farm Technology Days event in Portage County. The event will be hosted just outside of Stevens Point August 12 through the 14th in 2014. Blue Top Farms and Feltz Family Farms are the co-hosts.
Melissa Sabel is from the Stevens Point Area Visitor & Convention Bureau. She says they are looking for the volunteers and groups now to work the food booths at the show. “We are looking for local nonprofits that are interested in helping out volunteering for the event. It will be an opportunity for them to potentially earn proceeds based on the number of volunteer hours that each organization works.”
Sabel says interested groups can contact the Visitor and Convention Bureau at 715-344-2556 or attend an information session May 7th at 6pm at the Portage County Annex Building.
The deadline for organizations to sign up for Farm Technology Days participation is June 1st of this year. Sabel says they definitely want to partner with the local organizations that do so much for the local community.
This year’s Farm Technology Days is being hosted by Barron County July 9th through the 11th at the Breezy Hill Dairy just south of Dallas, Wisconsin.
