In June, members of Farm Credit Services of America Huron Office, were in Redfield redoing the two Welcome to Redfield digital sign centers as part of a Giving Back to Communities Program. On Wednesday, September 5, Jim Ellenson of the Redfield Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors presented them with a certificate of appreciation on behalf of the Chamber for the work they had done.
Members of the Huron Office worked to remove the old rock, plants, and weed paper. They then worked the soil, laid new weed barrier, new rock, and planted beautiful new plants to add a touch of color to the area.
In the Farm Credit Services of America Giving Back to Communities Program, Farm Credit Services of America staff complete various Community Service Projects, which is funded by their labor hours. In this case, the money raised was enough to match funds with the Redfield Chamber to pay the cost of the supplies to complete the project. Its our way of investing in our communities where we live, shop, and raise our families, said David Gatzke.
On this particular work day there were four members of the Huron Farm Credit Services of America team in town working. They included: David Gatzke, Kevin Haber, Rose Knouse, and Rachel Reimers.
In July, staff from the same office were at the Spink County Fairgrounds painting in the 4-H Building in anticipation of the Spink County Achievement Days.
