Everyone at Gold Dust Potatoes and Walker Brothers would like to wish you, your family and your friends a very happy Fourth of July. We also ask that as you celebrate the holiday, to take a moment and think about the brave men and women who fought to make this country the bastion of freedom that it is, and that you also have those who are serving our nation in your thoughts this day. Freedom isn’t free, and we appreciate the people and their families that make the sacrifices that make America the great nation that it is.
Also, if you’re in the Klamath Basin on the 4th, we hope you can make it to one of the many events that are going on. One event in particular that comes to mind is the Independence Day Jamboree and Parade. Out of all the things going on, why are we focused on it? Because our CEO and COO, Bill and John Walker, are the grand marshals of the parade! The theme for the parade this year is “The 4th On The Farm” and we’re excited Bill and John have been picked by the Chamber of Commerce for this honor and to represent Klamath Basin farmers. We hope you’ll join us in downtown Klamath Falls at 5 p.m. to watch the parade and join in in the festivities going on at Veteran’s Park after the parade is over.
Finally, something potato farmers are always interested in is whether or not the rows have grown in by the Fourth of July. And, by the looks of it, our chipping potatoes look pretty good – especially since the photo at the top of the post was taken the 2nd!
Again, we hope everybody has a fun and safe 4th of July. And thank you to the veterans those currently serving for keeping America free and Americans safe.
