The annual Marshall County Ag Day was held Sept. 19 at Centennial Park in Plymouth. Area third graders learned about the value of agriculture in our community.

Presenter topics included bees/pollination, electric safety, sheep, goats, dairy, beef, ducks, farm safety and draft horses. Journeyman Lineman Doug MacLain represented Marshall County REMC by educating the students and other attendees on the importance of electrical safety.

MacLain used the demonstration shown in the picture above to teach students how to react if they see a downed power line. He also explained what happens to the human body if it comes in contact with electricity.
