Greensburg — Decatur County Farm Bureau members are invited to the Annual Meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1. The meeting will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 1308 W Main Street, Greensburg.

The agenda includes Guest Speaker: 2011-2012 Indiana FFA Southern Region Vice President, Jacob Mattox, 18, of Decatur County. He is the son of Gregg and Barb Mattox. Over his four years of membership at South Decatur, Jacob was active on many levels. He served as Chapter President and Vice President and also served as District XII President. Jacob attended four state FFA conventions, attended four National FFA conventions, served as a counselor at FIRE Conference (Foundations in Reaching Excellence) and participated in the Washington Leadership Conference in 2010. Jacob is ecstatic to serve the Indiana FFA for the coming year. During his year of service, he will travel the state of Indiana promoting agricultural education and the FFA.
