Wonderful weather greets annual meeting crowd

In contrast to the hurricanes that had struck elsewhere in the country, beautiful weather greeted visitors to the Eastern Iowa REC annual meeting Sept. 7 at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport.  

During the re-organizational session held after the annual meeting, Joel Carstensen, Charlotte, was elected president of the board.  David Timmerman, Bennett, is the new vice president; and Gary Kester, Burlington, is the new board secretary.  Tom Hotz, Lone Tree, is the new treasurer; and Kathy Wunderlich, Danville, is the new assistant secretary.

Attendance was down this year with 906 memberships registered compared to 1,021in 2016.  The Cedar County Pork Producers, assisted by the Wilton FFA, served more than 1,850 meals during the event.  Full details on the event can be found in the September issue of the Current News.
