Bruce Vincent is coming to Martinsville

    This is the press release and email we are sending out to let people know about an opportunity that is coming up soon to hear and to meet Bruce Vincent.  I thought it best to post it here in case you haven't heard about it.

    You are invited to the Martinsville High School gymnasium on July 26 at 7:00 p.m. to hear Bruce Vincent deliver a message of hope and of the bright future possible for those living in rural areas and small communities.  You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity!
     Bruce Vincent is a third generation logger from Libby, Montana.  During the past 20 years, he has given motivational speeches throughout the United States and the world.  He has testified on natural resources issues before Congress and has appeared on several news programs such as “60 Minutes.”
     Bruce has been named Timberman of the Year in Montana, National Forest Activist of the Year, the Agri-Womens’s 2007 Veritas Award Winner, and in 2004 received the inaugural Presidential Preserve America Award from President George Bush.
    So often we feel that the tradeoff for the quality of life we have in small-town America is that we don’t matter in the larger scheme of things.  We fear that the state and federal governments only listen to those who live in large cities or who work in or around big businesses.
    Bruce is living proof that this does not need to be the case.  In fact, in light of the economic uncertainty around the world today, the common-sense approach to life, as well as the skills and trades of the people living in the farming and manufacturing communities of the Midwest, will be recognized as a vital part of what makes the United States great again.
     If you’re tired of hearing about what is wrong with the world, getting weary thinking about the hot and dry weather this year, and wanting to hear that the future is still something that can be greater than we imagined, please come on Thursday, July 26th at 7 p.m. to hear Bruce in the new Martinsville High School gym.
     Sponsored by Littlejohn Grain and Bolin Enterprises, with volunteers from Martinsville On The Move, this event is free to anyone who would like to attend.  Free refreshments will be served after the meeting.
      “Bruce is a powerful spokesman and advocate for educating consumers about agriculture in a truthful and balanced way.  We were pleased and honored to present him with the Veritas Award which he has truly earned in all the wonderful work he is doing.”  Yvonne Erickson, president, Agri-Women
