The 2013 Farm City Banquet, the 55th annual celebration in Franklin County, was held on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at the Capital Plaza Hotel. Hosted by the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Whitaker Bank, the ceremony was MC’d by Warren Beeler. The Benson Creek Band played some wonderful Bluegrass and gave attendees a warm welcome. This year, there was a record number of guests. The Whitaker Bank Farm/City Banquet recognizes the contribution of agriculture and promotes communication between farm and business communities. Students from Franklin County and Western Hills High School FFA programs were wonderful servers to an amazing meal.
