LYNDONVILLE – The 16th Annual Orleans County Farmer to Neighbor Night will be Saturday on March 15. The event will include awards, a silent auction, a showcase of FFA students, and dinner and dancing.

The event will celebrate the county’s leading industry. Agriculture generates more than $100 million in sales to the farms, and that doesn’t count the spinoff economic impact with tractor dealerships, veterinarians and other businesses.

Farmer to neighbor night begins at 6 p.m. at the White Birch Golf Course, 1515 North Lyndonville Rd. The event is sponsored by Orleans County Cornell Cooperative Extension, Farm Bureau, Soil & Water Conservation District, Chamber of Commerce and Albion FFA Alumni.

Reservations are due by March 12 and can be made by calling the Cooperative Extension at 585-798-4265 ext. 26.
