The tour begins at 2:00 p.m. and ends with dinner.

The dinner will be jointly provided by Virginia Tech and the PGCMA.

Following dinner, the PGCMA meeting will take place.

During the meeting, necessary business will take place and the manager’s report will be given.

President Billy Bain urges all peanut producers to attend and show their support for the research facility and for PGCMA.

PGCMA is the only organization dedicated to producer marketing, and it is critical for producers to understand fully what their marketing options are.

Since this is a joint meeting, there must be an accurate count for the meal.

If planning to be there for dinner, please call 657-6450 ext. 140 with the number of attendees.
