On Wednesday, February 7, 2018 the Missoula Chamber Agri-Business Committee hosted the 46th Annual Agri-Business Banquet. Nearly 300 were in attendance. This Annual event provides an opportunity for the business community to thank our farmers and ranchers for their contributions to our economy. The event featured a locally-sourced meal from our area producers and entertainment by The Ringling 5! We were thrilled to once again host Taylor Brown as our emcee for the evening. A raffle and silent auction was made possible by our generous donors. Over 34 tables were sponsored by our business community! This event would not be possible without your support! A BIG THANK YOU to Missoula Electric Co-op, our title sponsor; Will Johnson & Associates - Farm Bureau Insurance, Lithia Ford of Missoula, Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply, CHS/Mountain West Co-op and our venue for the evening, The Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown. A special thank you to Shane Clouse for his beautiful rendition of the National Anthem to kick off our evening and to the entire Missoula Chamber Agri-Business Committee for their organization, and support of this event! We are actively adding new farmer/ranchers to the list to receive an invitation to this event. If you know of someone in the agricultural community who would enjoy attending, please contact Krista at 406.215.1322 and we will add them to the list.
