That was the main message at this year’s annual Trigg County Agriculture Appreciation Dinner, held last Tuesday evening at the Trigg County Recreation Complex.

“We have such a great food supply, we can take it for granted … The good Lord has provided for us,” Armstrong said. “It’s easy to balk at technology when you have a full belly,”
