Executive Message
Difficult times test our mettle and our character.

Rural America is facing difficult times. We are losing farms and ranches, small businesses, churches, schools, and many of our young. Our challenge is to find the spirit, character, and perseverance of our pioneer ancestors, who lived through more hardships than we face. Our test is whether we, like them, can persevere through difficult times, working with our neighbors to create new farms, new businesses, and a new basis for strong communities.
