The Ag Credit Customer Appreciation Day was held Wednesday at the Hardin County Fair.
The event is for the customers of Ag Credit at the fair each year. Renae Sherman from Ag Credit said that the annual event has been a staple at the fair for the past fifteen years.
"Every year we start around noon, and we have many refreshments for our members, and later at 6pm we have door prize drawings for many door prizes, including a gas grill this year. It's our way of saying thanks to our members of their support throughout the course of the year" said Sherman.
And how Ag Credit pays back to its members each year in the form of patronage refunds.
"Ag Credit gives back to it's members by way of patronage. After we pay all our bills, what monies are left over are refunded back to the members each and every year. So every year our members get a check in the mail based a bit on what they paid in interest. Over the past five years we have refunded $4,313,839.00 to our members" said Sherman.
