WFBF Centennial Celebration
In 1920, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation was officially organized and became the 32nd state to join the American Farm Bureau Federation with 537 members. By the first Annual Meeting in 1921, WFBF membership had grown to 2,000 members in 15 counties. Annual dues were $2.50.
Fast forward nearly 100 years and WFBF will officially kick off a centennial celebration at the 2018 Annual Meeting and YFA Conference with the year-long commemoration concluding at the 2019 Annual Meeting and YFA Conference.
Farm Bureau Stories
Wisconsin Farm Bureau is sharing 100 member stories to celebrate 100 years of serving as the voice of Wisconsin agriculture. These stories will be shared as videos, blogs or photos. Be sure to check back often as new stories will be added regularly.
We all like to celebrate anniversaries and special events in our lives that bring us joy, happiness or a sense of togetherness. A century of Farm Bureau should bring us together in a celebration of what has been accomplished by our organization. Just like your personal anniversaries, celebrating the WFBF centennial can bring your county Farm Bureau together in a very special and positive recognition of the things that have occurred because of your organization’s efforts in the last 100 years.
Centennial Activity Awards
The Centennial Activity Award focuses on recognizing counties for conducting events and programs that commemorate the WFBF Centennial. Five counties will be selected to display their outstanding centennial program/activity during the WFBF 100th Annual Meeting Trade Show. Be sure to stop by the trade show to learn more about the winners.
What better way to celebrate Farm Bureau’s history than funding the future? With a goal of raising $100,000 by December 2020, Wisconsin Farm Bureau needs your help to preserve our state’s farming heritage. Your tax-deductible contribution will help lay the foundation for another 100 years.
