Where else can you get a steak dinner and entertainment for $20?”
Committee member Tonja Grace stated, “We are celebrating 200 years of farming in Alabama, and this year’s theme is ‘Keep Alabama Growing.’ Door prizes will be given away, and we have some great ones this year. It is an honor to live in Cullman, Alabama and what better time to celebrate a farmer than right here before Thanksgiving?”
