March 8, 2019, is a day set aside to recognize the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world.
To highlight this special day, the RVH Foundation, in partnership with BMO, is hosting a Women’s Day breakfast to support and connect the women who are involved in agriculture in our community.
Women are often the heart of farm operations, running equipment, delivering calves, keeping the books, picking up parts, marketing products, making meals and making key decisions.
“Women wear many hats in agriculture and on March 8 we are happy to support and celebrate local women who play an integral role in the industry,” says Laura Naismith, Relationship Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal and beef farmer.
The celebration will include guest panelists who are involved in agriculture and will be facilitated by Keanan Stone of Stone Farms/Valley Bio and Chair of the RVH Board of Directors.
“Whether your role is working in the field or supporting those who do, this is a great opportunity to connect with and support each other,” says Stone.
Join us to network with other women in agriculture and hear from a panel on important topics while celebrating each other.
Tickets are $20 per person and include the infamous Rocky Mountain House breakfast buffet. Please call the RVH Foundation at 613-432-4851 x276 to reserve your seat today. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
