Shenandoah Chamber and Industry Association is bringing Brooke Turner to their 28th annual Agri-Business Banquet on Monday, at 6:30 at the Shenandoah Elk's Club.
Brooke Turner Farms near new market, Iowa, but uses his music and poetry to reach the hearts of people throughout the country. In 2002, Turner released his first CD which he dedicated to his sister Jyl Waters, who was paralyzed in a farming accident last year. Turner then rode 700 miles to Nashville on horseback to perform his tribute to her and raise money for furthering spinal cord injury research. Shelley Smith, marketing director for the SCIA, says the event is to honor supporters of Iowa's agriculture. Two scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors planning to major in an agricultural field, along with other awards given to supporters of Iowa's agriculture community. Scholarship donations are being collected now, and banquet sponsors are also welcome to contribute to help off set the cost of the banquet.
