Shopping for a Good Cause!

Support the Marshall-Putnam and Bureau County Farm Bureau foundations as we host a bus trip to Chicago for a day of fun and holiday cheer on Wednesday, December 4!

The bus will depart Henry at 7:00 am, pick up our friends in Princeton and then head to Chicago. We plan to arrive back home around 7:00 pm.

As we arrive to the "windy city", multiple drop-off locations will be announced in order to accommodate your interests, including Michigan Avenue and State Street. Sites of interest may include the Chicago French Market and Christkindlmarket Chicago in Daley Plaza. Daley Plaza is just blocks away from the Macy’s Christmas window display.

Lunch and shopping while downtown will be on your own.

The cost is $55 for Farm Bureau members and $65 for non-members. You can register by calling the Farm Bureau office at 309-364-2501. The deadline to reserve your seat is noon, November 15. All proceeds will go to the Farm Bureau Foundation.

The Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau Foundation is committed to the future of agriculture and its continuing growth through education by supporting programs such as Agriculture in the Classroom, awarding scholarships to area teachers and students, donating agricultural books to area libraries, providing farm rescue training for first responders and educational programming for our members and the community.
