Honoring Marvin and Sharon Perzee

Earlier this spring the Illinois House of Representatives recognized Marvin and Sharon Perzee of Iroquois County on their over 50 years of advocating for farms and local fairs in Illinois. It was my honor to meet with Marvin and Sharon and present them with a copy of the resolution from the House of Representatives documenting many of their accomplishments over the last 52 years.

During that time, Marvin served as a member and President of the Iroquois County Fair Board, led the Ashkum Chargers 4-H club, served on Ag Advisory boards for several state and federal legislators and was named a 1999 Master Farmer. Over the years, Marvin and Sharon have shown such a wonderful love and passion for county fairs, agriculture, and our next generation of Ag leaders. They both are known and respected far and wide for their leadership around the state of Illinois.
