The Yolo County Farm Bureau will host its 99th annual meeting and the installation of officers and directors at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, in Waite Hall at the Yolo County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds are at 1250 E. Gum Ave. in Woodland.

The event begins with a social hour and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner catered by The Buckhorn at 7 p.m. and the program at 8 p.m.

The program will include installation of Farm Bureau officers and the board of directors, and the presentation of the Agriculturalist of the Year award to Denise Sagara, executive director of the Farm Bureau.

Sagara was born in Emmett, Idaho, and moved to Yolo County with her family in 1960. She graduated from Esparto High School in the early 1970s and married her high school sweetheart, Steve Sagara, of Sagara Farms Inc. Their family includes daughter Darci, son Jon and daughter-in-law Kelly, and two grandchildren, Troy and Trent.

Denise Sagara was employed as the secretary/bookkeeper for Sagara Farms Inc. before she was hired as the Yolo County Farm Bureau’s executive director in 1998. For the past 14 years, she has been behind the scenes, ensuring that the bureau runs smoothly.

“Denise has worked tirelessly to help promote agricultural awareness in Yolo County,” a news release said. “She also works to help protect and improve the ability of farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture to continue their family practices in Yolo County.”

Tickets to the Jan. 17 gala are $60 per person; tables of eight may be reserved for $450. RSVPs with payment are due by Jan. 11 to the Yolo County Farm Bureau, P.O. Box 1556, Woodland, CA 95776.
