Susquehanna County Dairy Day becomes Ag Day
The 25th annual Susquehanna County Ag Day will be held on Friday, March 7 at Elk Lake High School.
The event will kick off at 10 a.m. with 75 plus ag vendors, educational workshops, health organizations, lunch, pie baking contest, pie auction, and delicious dairy products including milk, cheese, and ice cream! This event, traditionally focused on dairy, is expanding to include all enterprises in agriculture.
According to Michelle Kowalewski, event organizer “It’s going to be the same great event, just with a different name.”
