County flashback – Oct. 19, 1957
The photo was taken at the recent Farm Bureau Young People’s gathering held at the Farm Bureau basement in Williamsburg. At the left are Mr. and Mrs. Nobel Brockshink, who farm north of High Amana in whose home Almuth Struckmeier, and IFYE from Hanover, Germany, is spending a month. Also in the picture are Myron Heitman, right, county FBYP president, and Mervin Blythe, standing, our district representative. Miss Struckmeier proved to be a very interesting speaker about farming and social life in her native land and had a ready answer for the many questions asked her. Jerry Jarrad of Victor also told the group about the tour of Iowa’s industry which he made with a group sponsored by the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation and the Iowa Development Commission.
