“With the Pandemic some of our funding sources have been cut and it has been difficult to do our usual fundraising to keep our Cooperative Extension and 4-H programs going.” stated Seneca CCE Executive Director Ave Bauder. “As we gear up our fall nutrition, agriculture, Master Gardener and 4-H programming, fundraisers like this are critical. We hope people will come out and get a great chicken BBQ that features that signature Cornell Sauce while enjoying all of the fresh produce and other items available at the Waterloo Rotary Farm Market. As a former Geneva Rotarian, I thank the Waterloo Rotary Club and appreciate their good work in supporting community groups like CCE/4-H by facilitating the Chicken BBQs that have been held throughout the season and for their efforts to make fresh, local produce available through sponsorship of the Farmers’ Market.”
