The Dawson Area Chamber of Commerce Ag Committee would like to thank all of our 2013 Sponsors. The money raised in this events is used to award scholarships to Dawson-Boyd graduates furthering their education in an ag related field and to fund ag related projects in our community. Without these businesses none of this would be possible. Ag Day Thank You PDF
The Gnome Committee is looking to the community to give them recommendations for the Dawson Gnome. The person you select to be honored should be someone who has served the community and his/her fellowmen in an exemplary way over the years, exerting a positive influence on the growth and well being of the community as a whole; as well as each individual member. He/she may have achieved a specific honor, but that is not the determining factor to become an honoree. Often our Gnome puts the service to others before personal gain or comfort and gives generously of time, talent and resources without recognition.
If you would like to recommend a nominee for 2013 there are forms at participating businesses in Dawson or nominations can also be sent via email to the Gnome Committee. Be sure to include the person(s) name, why you think they should be a nominee and your first and last name.
(Forms will not be accepted without a signature. Emails can be sent to the Gnome Committee at email@example.com)

Linda Brekke of the Linder Farm Network will be joining us during the Midday Farm Review and the LqP Co-op Fertilizer plant will also be having their annual Bin Days at their offices that day. With all that is going on we are anticipating a large turnout at this year’s event!
