              During a leadership lunch held at the American Farm Bureau Federation Convention in Phoenix, earlier in January to recognize Farm Bureau volunteers, Bulloch County Farm Bureau President Lannie Lee was recognized for his many years of service as a county Farm Bureau leader.
        Lee, 96, joined Farm Bureau in 1947 after returning home from serving in World War II. He served as president of the Brooklet Farm Bureau Chapter in his community in the 1950s and served as a director of the Bulloch County Farm Bureau for a number of years. He served as the vice president from 1973 until 2007 when he became president and continues to serve in that position.
        Founded in 1937, Georgia Farm Bureau is the largest general farm organization in the state.
        Its volunteer members actively participate in local, district and state activities that promote agriculture awareness to their non-farming neighbors. GFB also has 20 commodity advisory committees that give the organization input on issues pertinent to the major crops and livestock grown in Georgia.
        GFB membership is open to the public and offers a wide variety of benefits to its members including insurance and discounts for health services, travel and family entertainment. Enrollment in any of the member benefits is optional and not a requirement for membership.
        Becoming a GFB member helps support local farmers and ensures that all Georgians will continue to have access to locally grown and high-quality food.
