The directors of the Fayette county Farm Bureau decided Saturday night in the regular monthly meeting to accept the invitation given by the West Union Business Menís Club to hold the annual Farm Bureau picnic at the place. Four county picnics have been held, the first three in Fayette and last year in Oelwein. The one big county picnic was inaugurated to take the place of so many smaller township picnics and so far they have been very successful. No date has as yet been set for this yearís get together but it will be some time close to June 20th.


After considerable discussion by the board it was voted unanimously to again have floats and a parade. In making this decision the board felt that the parade added much to the dayís program and picnic in general. W. L. Peters, P. O. Stewart and G. D. Grimes were appointed as a general committee in charge of the picnic.
