Master Member Club and Volunteer of the Year
Karen Biernacki, Jim Bloomstrand, Ruth Zeldenrust and Janet McCabe re-inducted into the Cook County Farm Bureau Master Member Club for 2022. Biernacki achieved top point status by signing up 4 voting and 1 associate members.
Membership into the Club is accomplished by earning points by recruiting and reinstating voting and associate members during the year. Each received a gift card, and their names will be added to a wall display in the Cook County Farm Bureau boardroom.
Greg Stack was presented the Volunteer of the Year by President Janet McCabe as a result of his participation and leadership provided through the Ag Literacy Team. Specifically mentioned in the nominator’s application was efforts Greg made with the Party for the Pollinators, Ag days for third-graders, and Farm Shadow experiences for high school students. The nominator indicated that Greg’s presentation skills and knowledge/experience with horticulture were a “big hit” with students and teachers alike. Further, every year, teachers returned to Cook County Farm Bureau events largely because of Greg Stack
