Kiwanian Bill McCall (left) awards Lynn Sprague with a dedicated copy of the children’s book “Bearymore,” which will be given to a local school in Sprague’s honor. Sprague, who is Polk County Director of the Office of Agriculture and Economic Development, spoke at a recent club meeting, encouraging everyone to support local farmers. As part of his job, Sprague is bringing the whole community together to accomplish projects such as turning Mill Spring School into an agricultural center. Sprague’s goals are to promote local food with farmer’s markets and to preserve farmland and rural character. The Tryon Kiwanis Club meets every Wednesday at noon at the Congregational Church, 210 Melrose Ave, Tryon. If you would like to visit, please call president Steve Cobb at 859-0105.
