Just For Fun!


An important part of the Grower’s Gala is gathering around a special meal. While we can’t be together, we can still celebrate agriculture over dinner. This year, the Grower’s Gala was going to feature one of President Nelson’s favorites – pot roast! You are invited to be a part of the celebration by preparing your own pot roast meal to enjoy while you attend the virtual gala. It is a special evening – dessert is a must! Share photos of your meal at @neagfoundation on Facebook and Twitter to be entered to win prizes. Winners will be drawn throughout the evening.
