Tim Buskey Honored at the Vermont Farm Bureau
The Vermont Farm Bureau board met at Button Bay State Park in Ferrisburgh for their summer business meeting. The new VFB centennial sign was unveiled, a bright financial picture was presented, and the Vermont Farm Bureau nominating committee met to propose officers for the organization for consideration by the delegate body at the November 7 and 8 annual meeting at Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center in Burlington.
Both Addison and Chittenden County Farm Bureaus combined to host the meeting and treated board members to lunch which included Bill Scott’s fresh crop of sweet corn. Following the meal the meeting took an unexpected turn for former Vermont Farm Bureau administrator, Tim Buskey. Board members and friends stood and shared stories about working with Tim throughout the years. Washington County’s Bev McMullin presented Tim and Barbara Buskey with a basket of Vermont products along with a generous gift from all the counties to thank Tim for his years of service. Tim tearfully thanked the crowd and stated, “It was very easy to stay with Farm Bureau all of these years because Farm Bureau values are our values.” Tim is on the Addison County Farm Bureau Board and plans on staying active but this time as a member.
