Women on the farm program
Placeholder Image

Do farm families actually retire? What are our financial needs as we age? What role does Social Security have in our financial soundness? How do we afford health care and what are our options as we progress through life? How can the farm as a business provide health care coverage for my family and possibly a hired hand?
The Women on the Farm committee is hosting the next Women on the Farm Workshop on Monday, Oct. 26, at the Township Hall on HWY 96 in Rush Center. This workshop will help to answer all of the above questions.This workshop encourages all that anybody that has questions about these topics to attend, not only women!
We all have questions about our options when it comes to Social Security and what our health care options are. Debra Wood with the Central Kansas District for K-State Research & Extension will be presenting on the different options within Social Security and the impacts they make when it comes to drawing it. Dr. Roberta Riportella, Community Health Specialist with K-State Research & Extension will talk about health care options and how they relate to farm families.
Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the meeting starting at 6 p.m. A light supper will be served. Please RSVP by Oct. 23, to Stephanie Royer at the Rush County Conservation District at 785-222-2615 ext. 101 or on our Facebook Page “Women on the Farm.” If you need any accommodations please notify Stephanie as well.
