College Day Planned for Area Students, November 8th
The Bureau County Farm Bureau, along with Marshall-Putnam and Stark County Farm Bureaus will be hosting a College Open House Day for Agriculture on Wednesday, November 8th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Birkey’s Farm Store in Henry.  This is a great opportunity for area students to meet locally with representatives of these schools.
The following schools who offer agriculture programs have been invited: Illinois State University, University of Illinois, Southern Illinois University, Western Illinois University, Black Hawk East, Joliet Junior College, Lake Land College, Parkland College, Sauk Valley Community College and Illinois Central College. If you are interested in majoring in agriculture, please feel free to attend the program and utilize this opportunity to meet with nine Illinois colleges. 
All sophomore, junior and senior students from the high schools in Bureau, Marshall, Putnam, and Stark counties that are interested in pursuing a career in an agricultural field are invited to attend. With one in four jobs in Illinois being related to agriculture, we feel that an event of this type is very important.  Open House hours will be from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Bureau County schools have been assigned to the first session but if you would prefer the second session, it can be requested.
If you have any questions regarding the day, or know a student who would like to attend please contact the Bureau County Farm Bureau at (815) 875-6468. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity!
