Friday, November 23, 2012

Dave Brooks
The Putnam County Extension Advisory Council invites all residents to its annual meeting at the Putnam County Fairgrounds on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 6:30 p.m.

Dave Brooks, the general manager of the POET Biorefining Cloverdale plant, will be the featured speaker for the evening.

Brooks will discuss the role of POET in the Putnam County community, the impact of ethanol production and overview energy issues. This annual meeting will also feature a very brief business meeting for extension board elections and an extension program update.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under.

The meal will be a catered dinner with desserts prepared by the ladies of the Extension Board.

An RSVP by noon on Monday, Nov. 26 would be appreciated so an accurate meal count may be obtained. Tickets are available from any Extension Board member or the Purdue Extension Putnam County Office.

The Extension Office is now located at 12 Central Square (street address 152 E. Columbia St.) in the Pershing Accounting and PNC Bank Building. You may contact the local Purdue Extension Office by calling 653-8411 for more information about the annual meeting.

Sponsors helped to offset the cost of the annual meeting. Special thanks to Co-Alliance LLP, Farm Credit Services, Hendricks Power Cooperative, Parke County REMC, Teacher's Credit Union and Tri-County Bank & Trust.
