For more than 70 years the annual Farm City Week has been observed across America during the week leading up to Thanksgiving. The Chambers County Farm City Committee planned several local events to underscore the interdependence of those who live on farms with those people who live in metropolitan areas.
Mrs. Lillian Slay presented several awards to students from Chambers Academy for their winning entries in county-wide competitions as part of the Farm City initiative. A banquet was held on Tuesday, November 19th at the ALFA building in laFayette to honor those recipients.
