ATKINSON — Holt County Farm Bureau will host its annual meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9 at Flat Iron Bar & Grill in Atkinson.

Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation Executive Director Megahn Schafer will be the guest speaker and will discuss the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund.

The disaster relief fund collected more than $3.3 million with 100 percent of the funds going to help farmers, ranchers and rural communities that are suffering from the natural disaster that impacted the state in March.

“We are looking forward to hearing Megahn speak at our Holt County Farm Bureau annual meeting and would like to thank her personally for all the hard work that the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation has done to help rural communities, farmers and ranchers rebuild from the flood,” said Holt County Farm Bureau President Barry Kelly.

While donations to the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund have ended, there are other ways to support continued disaster relief efforts. Donors interested in helping those affected by recent flooding in central Nebraska or farmers in western Nebraska who are without water for their crops because of a canal breach in Wyoming can learn more and make donations to the Kearney Area Community Foundation at or Oregon Trail Community Foundation at
