Farmer Appreciation Dinner and Caring for Your Neighbor Event to be held in Sisseton on Jan. 14

South Dakota’s farm and ranch families are invited to a Farmer Appreciation Dinner and Caring for Your Neighbor Event on Jan. 14 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church in Sisseton.

The evening will include fellowship and a workshop facilitated by SDSU Extension called “Weathering the Storm in Agriculture,” which provides information on how to care for a neighbor that is dealing with the impacts of chronic stress associated with agriculture.

“Attendees will learn how to identify stress signs and symptoms, everyday strategies for managing stress, how to build an action plan for managing stress and where to go for more help and resources.”

— Krista Ehlert, SDSU Extension Range Specialist and a member of the SDSU Extension rural behavioral health team
