**UPDATE/POSTPONEMENT: FARM SAFETY EVENT**
The Montcalm County Farm Bureau and MSU 4-H Extension Office have decided that the health of our community members is of utmost importance. With that in mind we have jointly decided to postpone the Farm Safety Event that was scheduled for Monday, March 23 in efforts to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). While we are sad the event will not take place as schedule, we feel this is a necesary step to help protect our families, friends, and the overall health of our community. If you have any questions regarding the event, please feel free to call the Montcalm County Farm Bureau Office at 989-831-4094.
If you think you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus and have difficulty breathing, fever, or cough, please call your health provider. If they are closed, call the Urgent Care/Walk-in-clinic or emergency department for instructions before going to the facility.
Stay safe and wash your hands!
Sincerely,
Montcalm County Farm Bureau and MSU 4-H Extension Office

Medicare Made Easy (XDVE 220 01)

Medicare can be confusing. It’s easy to miss important information and make a wrong choice that can cost you thousands of dollars down the road. Learn all about the ABCs and D of Medicare, and how to make the most of your Medicare benefits. No products will be sold here; it’s strictly educational. This class is appropriate for anyone who will be signing up for Medicare in the near future and their caregivers.

At the program they served the World's smallest BLT's and the Ag Club members were there to assist and showcase their Collegiate Farm Bureau Thanksgiving project for area Head Start families.
