Blessings from the Field (Everyone Welcome)
Evening of August 26th, 2017

The Agricultural Leadership of Oklahoma Board (ALO) will be holding a Blessings from the Field, annual fundraiser dinner at White Dog Hill Restaurant in Clinton, Oklahoma, on August 26, 2017 at 7:30 pm —Address (22901 Old 66 Frontage Road, Clinton, OK 73601). This dinner will be held to benefit the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program (OALP).  The purpose of this event is to bring past alumni from the OALP program together to raise money for continued program necessities and to ensure continued success for future OALP classes. The ALO Board has had much success with this event two years ago in Northwest Oklahoma and has decided to plan a similar event in different regions of the state. This year the region selected will be Southwest Oklahoma.  ALO board members have been working diligently developing a wonderful evening that will showcase a wide array of fantastic cuisine options for those who plan to attend.   Equally important, we are looking forward to showcasing Oklahoma’s agricultural heritage and industry. We will also be taking people on several food experiences that lend themselves to other regions of the world, all while showcasing the famous agricultural products we grow right here in our great state!

Entertainment for the evening will be provided by the Kristyn Harris Trio for more information on the band you can click here at https://www.kristynharris.com/videos
