Orion Samuelson Journeys to Wagner Farm

Posted by Allyson

We have another exciting event coming up at Wagner Farm this spring that I wanted to share with all of you.  On Wednesday, April 24, famed WGN farm broadcaster Orion "Big O" Samuelson will join us at our quarterly volunteer meeting at 7:00 pm.  Samuelson will speak and sign copies of his new memoir You Can't Dream Big Enough: The American Farmer's Friend for Over 60 Years.  Samuelson's book chronicles his journey from his parents' dairy farm to a broadcasting career that took him to 44 countries and meetings with world leaders including seven U.S. presidents.  Books will be available for purchase at the event or in advance in the Heritage Center Gift Shop.  RSVP required as seating will be limited.  Please join us in welcoming one of the country's most recognizable voices of agriculture at Wagner Farm on April 24!
