Black farmers meeting set for Thursday

A black farmers meeting has been scheduled for the Federation of Southern Cooperatives at Holly Grove Baptist Church in Jemison Thursday at 6 p.m.

John Zippert, the director of program operations for the Southeastern district will discuss the fact sheet on the Black Farmers Class Action Lawsuit.

All farmers are invited and need to bring your tracking numbers and all letters in their original envelopes if possible as evidence.

Zippert stated that he will bring someone to talk to anyone who has not signed up for the Black Farmers Lawsuit.

This meeting will be good for the good of the farmers and will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

Everyone is asked to be on time to the meeting.
