In the process of raising funds for a project, the local Farm Bureau exceeded its goal and was able to donate to others.

The Fulton, Henry, Williams $ Defiance County Farm Bureau hosted a fundraising event in February that included a private concert with Girl Named Tom that was sponsored by Kenn-Feld Group. The funds from previous fundraisers and from the concert exceeded the amount needed for the 1920s Farm Bureau Office project at Sauder Village.

The excess funds that were raised were donated to the music department at Pettisville High School, where Girl Named Tom members attended, and also to the Northwest Ohio Grain Safety Training Center, which is a new facility being built to provide grain elevator professionals, firefighters, and other first responders with training on grain bin entrapment rescues as well as fire and explosion training.

The 1920s Farm Bureau Office project at Sauder Village is complete and ready for people to explore.
