"I am so glad that the Tennessee Soybean Festival found you. At the end of the day all of our efforts are directed toward improving the quality of life for our constituents. It's about building community. Being around like minded people for a few days was and is uplifting. It makes our efforts even more worthy knowing there are others out there working to bring joy to others in some very creative ways. The conference brings these good people together and the time together is special." - David Belote, Tennessee Soybean Festival, Martin, TN
