Hedrick Industries Supports Anson County ‘Farm-City Week’
Posted on October 9th, 2015
Every year, Anson County – home to Hedrick Industries’ Lilesville Quarry in Eastern North Carolina – observes Farm-City Week with a dinner and program. This year, Hedrick Industries was invited to attend the event, which was on Tuesday, September 22nd at the Lockhart-Taylor Center of South Piedmont Community College in Wadesboro. Farmers, livestock producers, business and community leaders across the county attended to celebrate Anson County’s efforts to improve the quality of life in the county.
Anson County Cooperative Extension, in conjunction with the Brown Creek Soil & Water Conservation District and the Anson County Chamber of Commerce cordially put on this year’s Farm-City dinner. Pee Dee Electric was the host for the evening. The event combined local agricultural and community partners’ expo, a beef dinner catered by the Anson County Cattlemen’s Association, and entertainment by renowned magician and performer, Paul Miller. There was also a “Meet the Winners” reception for this year’s award recipients:
- Gary Sikes, Outstanding Farmer of the Year awarded by Cooperative Extension
- Tractor Supply Company, Outstanding Agri-Business of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce
- John McCormick, Conservation Farm Family by Brown Creek Soil & Water Conservation District
- Curtis Napier and Hunter Taylor, Resource Conservation Workshop Student Participants by Brown Creek Soil & Water Conservation District
Farm-City Week takes place around the nation each year to fortify the understanding of farm-city relations that deliver the foundation for our food and shelters. Hedrick Industries is proud to be a part of Anson County’s strong ties to its agricultural base and its importance to the local economy. It cannot be denied, the growth in our business and agriculture depend upon the success of one another. Moving forward, it takes both parties working together to succeed.
