Last week I was invited to give an update on county government issues to the Bentonville Early Riser Rotary Club. Since it's June Dairy Month, it seemed only natural to include a little dairy info,too!
Rex introduced me to the group and explained that our friendship began when I worked for him in the drug store during my high school years. It was the first time I had the opportunity to give Rex his proper thank-you for being the reason I became a dairy farmer. If I hadn't worked for him in high school, Ryan's mother would never have given me a chance with her dairy farmer son!
I'm thankful for all the members in my Bentonville community that mentored me in serving others such as my piano teacher,Araminta, my Girl Scout leader,Marilyn, that led us from 2nd grade till I graduated, and for Rex, the local pharmacist, that taught me that the customer is always right !
I'm thankful to be Arkansas Grown!
