The Stanislaus County Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R), a subcommittee of Farm Bureau, will be discussing the potential Modesto Irrigation District (MID) water sale to San Francisco at their Fall General Meeting on September 18th.
Despite the busy harvest time for many farmers, the meeting featuring keynote speaker Modesto Mayor Garrad Marsh, is an important one and YF&R is asking for their members and the public to participate in the important discussion.
Modesto Mayor Marsh will begin his opening remarks at 6:30pm and provide an overview of the subject.
Guest speakers for and against the water sale will discuss the affects of a potential water sale to San Francisco.
At 7pm, John Duarte, Jake Wenger, and other invited guests will participate in a round table styled discussion of the potential water sale while allowing a Q&A period for those in the audience.
Previous to the discussion, a social time with appetizers and drinks will also be held from 6pm – 6:30pm. For those wishing to attend the social time, there is a $10 suggested fee to cover food and drinks that will be served.
