Former Rocky Mountain Farmers Union President John Stencel will join three others in being honored for lifetime achievements in agriculture when he is inducted into Colorado’s Agriculture Hall of Fame during a banquet and ceremony Feb. 21, 5:30 p.m., at the Doubletree Hotel, Denver.
The 18th Annual Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame Banquet will bring together members of the agricultural community and allied industry as well as friends and supporters from across the state to pay tribute to these outstanding individuals, and to support the Colorado FFA Foundation. An extensive multi-media presentation will highlight the life of each new inductee during the induction ceremony. Other 2007 inductees are Paul Bernklau, Rifle, Colo., and Dennis Everhart Woodrow, Colo.

The banquet will be held in conjunction with the Colorado Agricultural Outlook Forum.
