Honoring Our Past, Forging Our Future!

On November 7th, 2019, MAEF held its 31st Annual Banquet and Auction, honoring those who have been a part of MAEF’s story and celebrating all of the wonderful members of the Maryland agriculture and education community who allow us to achieve our goals of instilling the importance of agriculture in everyone. The evening could not have been possible without the support of our community, the passion of those who helped to build this organization, and the individuals who allow us to reach new milestones. 

Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, and helped us celebrate our accomplishments! Take a look at the banquet photos at the link below!
