Lone Star Ag Credit Celebrates National Ag Day at Waco Office

WACO, Texas – In honor of National Ag Day on March 18, Lone Star Ag Credit is celebrating the community's agricultural heritage in an open house at its Waco credit office.

The free public reception will feature light refreshments and a drawing for a cooler and other items. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 18 at the lending cooperative's Waco credit office at 13525 Sandalwood Drive.

National Ag Day is a nationwide celebration of agriculture's vital role in our society. The theme of the 42nd annual event is “Agriculture: Sustaining Future Generations."

“All of the loan officers in our credit office understand agriculture firsthand because we also have crop or cattle operations," said Adam Goldenberg, vice president at Lone Star Ag Credit's Waco office. “We enjoy using that expertise to help customers produce the food and fiber so important to the local economy, and we look forward to celebrating National Ag Day with the community we serve."

Established by the nonprofit Agriculture Council of America, National Ag Day is a nationwide celebration that raises awareness about:

  • How food and fiber products are produced
  • The role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products
  • The essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy
  • The career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry
