Goad returns to McHenry County

 

 

Hello, McHenry County Farm Bureau members. For some of you this will be a reintroduction and for others, this will be all new. My name is Victoria Goad and I was recently hired by the Illinois Farm Bureau as a County Farm Bureau Manager trainee. This is my second week on the job and I am excited to return to McHenry County, not only because I grew up in McHenry County but because the McHenry County Farm Bureau is near and dear to my heart. Just four short years ago I had the honor of serving as the McHenry County Farm Bureau Intern. During that time I was able to assist with Agriculture in the Classroom, work on the McFarmer Blog, and spark my interest in all of the Farm Bureau.

Helping homeless veterans:

McHenry County Farm Bureau Women's Committee donated 20 welcome packs to homeless veterans who are in the process of rebuilding their lives at New Horizons in Hebron.
TLS needs your help as well!


Transitional Living Services can't help veterans without the generous support of individuals and organizations. Whether you want to share your time, donate goods and services or give financial assistance, your contributions will make a difference in the life of a struggling veteran.
