Macoupin Farmer Wins $5_000 for Donation

Betsy Meisenheimer of Palmyra was selected as a winner in America's Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. Grow Communities gives farmers the opportunity to win a $2,500 donation to direct to their favorite local nonprofit organization.

Because Macoupin County was declared a disaster area from the drought by the USDA, Meisenheimer was given the opportunity to place two $2,500 donations. She selected the Macoupin County 4-H and the Macoupin Military Support Group.

The checks were presented Monday night in Carlinville by a Monsanto representative.
