As you may know, Joe Free passed away last December after a long life involved in all things agriculture, including community service, church and the Frederick County Farm Bureau.

As a member of Farm Bureau all of his life, he served in many offices including the presidency. He was responsible for gathering hundreds of members for the organization and eventually was awarded the Maryland Farm Bureau’s Distinguished Service Award for all his efforts.

Recently, the Free Family decided to establish a scholarship fund in memory of Joe to be administered by the Frederick County Farm Bureau and gave a very generous donation to start the fund. This scholarship is to be available to Frederick County Farm Bureau members who are pursuing a degree in any agricultural curriculum.

We know there are many in our Farm Bureau family and beyond who may wish to participate in this memorial to Joe. To do so, all that is necessary is to send a check made payable to Frederick County Farm Bureau and send it to the attention of our Treasurer Larry Howard at PO Box 3340, Frederick, MD 21705. Please note on the check “Free Memorial.” Your contributions will be greatly appreciated and properly acknowledged to the family.

We are grateful for your participation in this very worthwhile initiative.
