Horn Farm Happenings – August 25

Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education Board President, Warren Evans

Warren Evans

We are deeply saddened by the loss one of our heroes. On Monday, Warren Evans passed away peacefully at home encircled by his family. For those of you who are newer to the Horn Farm, Warren and June Evans were key players in rescuing the Horn Farm from industrial development in 2000 and they have served as volunteers and financial supporters of the Horn Farm Center ever since. Both served on the Board of Directors; Warren served as Board president until 2014. We are finding some comfort in the image of him riding the August 21 eclipse into the Universe. Thank you Warren for all that you did to make the Horn Farm Center dream into a reality!
