Chippewa Falls Chamber hosts Farmer Appreciation Dinner
CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - Area farmers get a salute from the Chippewa Falls Area Chamber of Commerce.
The 51st Annual Farmer Appreciation Dinner was held Wednesday at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds. It was open to area farmers and chamber business members.
Chamber organizers expected to serve around 2,000 chicken dinners in their show of support for farmers. Dinners were served outside on the picnic tables, or a drive-thru option was available for the second straight year.
“We really hope that next year we can go to the full picnic style. Our goal is really to have the agriculture community and business community sit down and enjoy a dinner together. So, while we respect and understand that the drive-thru is important to people during this pandemic time, we really do hope that next year, we can all sit down for dinner again,” said Michelle Farrow with the Chippewa Falls Area Chamber of Commerce.
