August 6, 2014 — ACE (Agricultural Community Engagement™) On-the-Farm Twilight Meetings are an opportunity to bring together local community leaders and dairy producers to learn together and discuss important issues. Amy Bonomie, PDPW’s manager of partnerships and public outreach explains in this “Your Bottom Line” podcast:
These meetings are brought to you by the Wisconsin Counties Association, Wisconsin Towns Association and the Professional Dairy Producers (PDPW) and are open to the public. “This is a free, open-invitation to community leaders, elected officials, conservation officials, dairy and livestock producers and community members interested in learning from each other so Wisconsin communities continue to be green and vibrant,” states Shelly Mayer, Executive Director of PDPW.
Those attending one of the ACE On-the-Farm Twilight Meetings will be treated to a 60-minute tour of the hosting dairy, followed by open dialogue and ice cream. The discussion will provide a platform for open communication about issues important to our communities.
The meetings will begin with dairy tours at 6:00 p.m., and from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. ice cream will be served with discussion and open Q&A to follow.
