As part of the CCCGA Leadership Development Program, which I have been participating in for the last several months, a trip to Washington D.C was sponsored by First Pioneer Farm Credit. In Washington the Leadership Team met with Ron Carlton at Senator Kennedy’s Office, Trevor Dean at Senator Clinton’s Office, Peter Kovar at Congressman Frank’s Office, and with Congressman Delahunt. We emphasized the importance of cranberry industry in our state and throughout the country and the value of the Cranberry Research Enhancement Initiative in the 2007 Farm Bill.
Don’t we look brilliant!
