Several members of the Christian County community came out to celebrate and honor the hard work of the hundreds of farmers and producers throughout Christian County with the annual ag appreciation luncheon held at the 2011 Christian County Fair.
Visitors heard from a number of speakers, including Sue Davis of the Christian County Soil and Water Conservation who says that due to state spending cuts, without support of community members, the Soil and Water Conservation could be without state funding in the very near future.

Davis says that if people are wanting to get involved, they should contact Governor Pat Quinn’s office and explain how important the organization is.
