Alice Winslow receives Farm Bureau Honorary Life Award


Mon, Dec 1st, 2014
Posted in Fountain Agriculture

Alice Winslow of Fountain received the Honorary Life Membership Award at the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation’s (MFBF) Bureau’s 96th Annual Meeting. Recognition was given during the Friday night awards banquet on November 21 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington. The honorees were selected for their dedicated service to their county, their community and Minnesota agriculture.

Winslow of Fillmore County was once a “city girl” who married a fifth generation farmer and quickly adapted to farm life helping in the fields and barns. She quickly learned to drive tractors and do daily chores, and always had meals ready for her hard working husband, children and anyone else who happened to be there at meal time. She has been a dedicated Farm Bureau member and has given countless hours to the Fillmore County Farm Bureau serving in several capacities through the years. She spent hours going door to door on membership drives for the county Farm Bureau, in an effort to protect the way of life that she came to love.

Winslow has served in her community as a 4-H leader, a volunteer nurse at the local elementary school, as the United Methodist Women’s president and a Sunday school teacher.

“I have never had a better honor than this award,” said Winslow.

Minnesota Farm Bureau is the largest general farm organization in the state representing Farmers • Families • Food. Nationwide, the American Farm Bureau Federation has nearly six million members in nearly 2,800 county Farm Bureaus. For more information log onto www.fbmn.org.
