Peggy Meyer, co-owner with her husband of Meyer Farm and Little Noix Lavender Field, presented a program to the Ecumenical Women’s Breakfast group at their first meeting of 2017 on Monday, March 13.
It was held at Centenary United Methodist Church in Louisiana with the ladies of Calumet Presbyterian Church as co-hostesses in providing a bountiful breakfast.
There were 41 in attendance from nine area churches.
Special guests were Dr. Todd Smith, Superintendent of Schools of Louisiana R-II School District and Marvin Brown, school board member, who asked the group for their support on the upcoming vote in April on school funding.
In explaining her background for her interest in growing and sharing fresh produce, Meyer shared that her father and grandfather were truck farmers and she grew up growing produce and getting valuable experience by working at farmers’ market stands from a young age.
