Adams SWCD and Adams County Farm Bureau held their joint annual meeting on August 25, 2015. A meal was provided by the Culinary Arts Class from Ohio Valley CTC. Farm Bureau and Adams Soil and Water each conducted their portions of the meeting. Voters elected Jacob Rhonemus and Garine Shoemaker to serve the three year term of Supervisor that will begin January 1, 2016. The 2015 Friend of Conservation award was given to Tim and Denise Montgomery, representing the Wildlife Conservation Foundation for Ohio. They have devoted time and financial assistance to Adams SWCD through a grant that allowed us to purchase archery equipment, pellet gun range, and 13 park benches. We are grateful for the organization also for a generous donation for improvements to Shade Tree Park.
