MFPC’s annual legislative reception was crowded with legislators, state officials and members Feb. 7  and they were talking about everything from the Agriculture-Conservation merger to the SFI flume.

“It was a great success and well-attended,” said Executive Director Patrick Strauch. “It was a good opportunity for both members and legislators to get to know each other.”
