The 2019 Farmers’ Appreciation Dinner has been set for Thursday, January 24, 2019.
The Crowley Chamber of Commerce and Supreme Rice hosted our annual Farmers’ Appreciation Dinner in honor of the farmers who make such a large contribution to the culture and economy of Acadia Parish. This year’s banquet was held on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the International Rice Festival Building in Crowley. Guests arrived at 5:30 p.m. for a social hour and the opportunity to view booth exhibits from local vendors. A jambalaya dinner with trimmings followed at 6:30 p.m.
This dinner is financed through tickets purchased by local businesses and individuals at a fee of $10.00 per ticket, which includes dinner and drinks. This event would not be possible without our generous title sponsor, Supreme Rice, and our event sponsors listed below. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support. In addition, we would like to thank Rice Palace and G&H Outdoor Store for the donation of a Berretta Shotgun that was raffled at the dinner.
We are truly excited about this amazing opportunity to bring our farming community together & support their efforts. If you have any other questions or need more information, please feel free to call our office, 337-788-0177.
Special Thanks to those who supported our 2018 Farmers’ Appreciation Dinner!
