High Plains RC&D annual meeting set for July 30 in Taloga


Coleta Bratten, Chair of High Plains RC&D, announced recently that the organization's annual meeting will be held at the Dewey County Fairgrounds, Taloga, Okla., on July 30.

The annual meeting will begin with registration at 5:30 p.m, and dinner at 6 p.m. World renowned chemical engineer, Terry Brix of Blue River, Ore., will deliver the keynote address. Brix is expected to address economic opportunities that exist in Northwestern Oklahoma, utilizing natural resources, including growing microalgae for the production of essential oils, feed, and food. Brix and his affiliated companies hold over 300 patents dealing with extraction of chemical compounds. He is active in businesses in the United States, China, Japan, and Iceland. He feels that northwestern Oklahoma has more economic development opportunities in using its natural resources than any other region in the world.

Dr. Larry Sanders, Professor of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University will reveal the preliminary results of High Plains RC&D's "Think Tank-Blueprint for the Future of Oklahoma." The "Think Tank" is composed of 20 leading scientists, economic developers, businessmen, and others who are assisting the RC&D in creating "cutting edge" innovative projects to provide jobs and economic development for rural Oklahoma.

High Plains RC&D is based in Buffalo and serves eight northwestern Oklahoma counties, including the Panhandle. During the last 7 seven years, High Plains has utilized over $15 million in grants, program funds, and contracts to produce over $150 million in projects, including new and expanded businesses, most of which are tied to the natural resources of the region.

Advance registration is required. Registration cost for the meeting is $10. which includes the meal. Payment may be made at the door. People may register by calling the office at 580-735-2033 Ext 4, by e-mail at hprcd@pldi.net or on line by visiting the website at www.highplainsrcd.com.
