About 135 people attended the Imperial Chamber of Commerce’s sixth annual Ag Technology Fair last Wednesday.
Organizer Chris Lee said, “We had a good turnout. We had 18 excellent vendors who wanted to be there.”
Lee said some vendors indicated that they had potential customers from the event.
The purpose of the event was to thank local producers for supporting the community, as well as to introduce new technology to producers.
The Ag Tech Fair was held at the St. Pat’s Catholic Church parish hall. A meal was served to those attending.
Drawing winners included Bob Ahrens for a 32-inch LED flat screen television, Tommy Arterburn for a Kindle Fire HDX tablet and Brenda German for a Portfolio.
