“We understand that this will be disappointing to a lot of school children as well as our volunteers and presenters,” the Farm Bureau release said. “However, we feel it is in the best interest of all involved and to help preserve the health of our community that we follow the recommendation of local health officials. We want to thank all of our presenters and volunteers for their time in preparation for this event and look forward to bringing back Farm Day at Bolado Park next year.”
