Recognizing that farming today in this community is 'big business', the businessmen whose individual advertisements appear here are supporting a series of "Let's Get Acquainted" aerial farm photos in this county and a series of pictures of business places in this town. The "mystery farm photo", and the "business place photo" will help business folks in town and their neighbors in the country to become better acquainted. In both cases, we will be able to appreciate more the efforts being made by both town and county residents to make progress in their work while building a better community.
