ST. PAUL (November 25, 2013) – Minnesota Farmers Union honored Gary Gregerson of Badger with their Lifetime Achievement Award at their 72nd annual state convention.
“Gary has been a dedicated and loyal Farmers Union member for years. You can always count on him to be there to fight for Farmers Union and what is important to our members by providing policy direction and old-fashioned, common-sense, get-it-done work ethic,” said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union President. “It is great to have him as a member and leader of Minnesota Farmers Union.”
Gary has served as the Roseau County Farmers Union President since 1973 when he signed up for a 25-year membership. He used to be a small grain farmer on the land where he was born and raised, but has since retired, still residing in the farm house where he grew up.
Gary believes that the Farmers Union represents so much more than just Minnesota farmers. He believes that the organization represents the best interests of the state. Throughout his membership, he has seen a lot and learned a lot, finding MFU very rewarding. He is proud to see a lot of young, passionate, new members.
He was on the Board of his local Farmers Union oil company for over thirty years, and is also a Legion member. Gary and his wife Michelle live in Badger. They have three grown children, one grandchild with two more on the way!
