Should the county emergency management agency office duties be a separate office?
Farmer wins $5,000 for two agencies
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 7:13 PM

Bill Young of Payne has been selected as a winner in American’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.

Each year, farmers are given the opportunity to win $2,500 donation for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. Double donations were available locally because Paulding County was declared a disaster area by the USDA due to drought conditions. Young had the opportunity to make two $2,500 donations. His selections were the Paulding County 4-H Advisory Council and the Payne Volunteer Fire Department. He received the checks in a special ceremony Monday, Feb. 25 at the Paulding County Extension Office.












Present for the fire department’s donation (above) were, from left – Jeff Hunker from Monsanto’s Findlay office, Gary Gasser from the Payne Fire Department and Young. The fire department intends to purchase new bunker gear.

At the 4-H council’s presentation (below) were, from left – Staci Hiler, 4-H program assistant; Hunker, senior 4-Hers Maggie Wilhelm, Emma Schmidt and Kara Burak; and Young. Plans for the 4-H donations include camp scholarships, a livestock clinic, and materials for a school enrichment program.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to society and to help them positively impact their communities.
