Governor-Elect Markell to Speak at January Friends of Agriculture Breakfast

Delaware will have a new governor soon and policies that are put in place by the new administration will have many effects on the horticultural industry in the state. The following is the announcement for the January 9, 2009 Friends of Agriculture Breakfast to be held during Delaware Agriculture Week at the Harrington Fire Hall. This is an opportunity to get a feel for the new administration prior to taking office.
