The lighter side of Bean Day

At left, Jim Teter has a little fun with Clayton Day of ADM Specialties, whose magic wand goes limp during a trick. Below, Teter displays his cast of ventriloquist dummies that he used in his show at the pre Bean Day banquet.

More scenes from Bean Day!
Tim Courneya, Northarvest Bean Grower Association executive vice-president,presents Leann Schafer, New Rockford, N.D., with the door prize of a TV and VCR.  AgCountry Farm Services and Farm Credit Services of Grand Forks,N.D., sponsored the door prize for North Dakota or Minnesota growers registering for Bean Day 2005. 

If this picture looks familiar, you're right.  Schafer won the door prize last year, too. Her number wasn't the first one drawn this year at Bean Day.  Because of worsening weather, many of those who registered in the morning left by early afternoon before the door prize was drawn.  CONGRATULATIONS LEANN!

The trade show featured dozens of booths and gave attendees a chance to see what was new and to meet industry representatives.

Gary Friskop, Wahpeton, N.D., immediate past president of the Northarvest board of directors opens the 30th annual Bean Day with a hearty welcome.
