Farm Bureau foundations will benefit from Dec. 4 trip

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Farm Bureau and the Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau Foundations will host a trip to Chicago on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

The group will depart the Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau Building in Henry at 6:30 a.m. and the former Bureau County Farm Bureau Building in Princeton at 7 a.m. They will then head to Chicago for the day.

Multiple drop-off locations will be announced once in the city in order to accommodate different interests, including Michigan Avenue and State Street. Sites of interest may include the Chicago French Market and the Chicago Christkindlmarket. Lunch and shopping while downtown will be on your own. The group will head home in the early evening. Snacks and drinks will be provided on the bus. The cost for the day is $55 for Farm Bureau members and $65 for non-members. All proceeds will go to the Farm Bureau Foundation.
