Aerial Photo Shoot

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Dear Community Ag Business Leaders and Friends;

WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH AN AERIAL PHOTO SHOOT!!

A group of Central California ag business leaders have organized an aerial photography shoot depicting the impact farmers have on our local communities. We need your resources to be part of this creative messaging intended to help the general public realize the importance of farmers, water and its impact on the many umbrellas of business. To do this, we are planning a large-scale photograph in an open field of alfalfa.

The document below is a sign-up sheet matrix demonstrating the numerous businesses involved in the planting and cultivating of just one crop-alfalfa. We ask you to locate your industry/process on the document below and commit to lending yourself, your equipment, and passing along this information so that we can have a dynamic photograph. If you don't see your industry, please add it to list.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR? Like any good project, timing is everything. There is no cost to this project; just your commitment to get yourself and your equipment to the photo shoot on the scheduled day, Thursday, October 3rd. We have listed that information below. In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

DATE: Thursday, October 3, 2013

TIME: 9am Field Side Set-Up (equipment needs to arrive by 8am)

10am-11am: Photo Shoot

11am: Press Conference

11:30am: BBQ Lunch for all Participants at American Legion Hall, 1300 "O" St., Firebaugh

LOCATION: Alfalfa Field Southwest Corner of Nees and Douglas Avenues, West of Delta-Mendota Canal

Bring your company's banner or large sign for inclusion in the photo

WHY SHOULD I BOTHER: We know people are busy, but it is important you make the time to participate. This is your opportunity to make your concerns known firsthand regarding the true impacts of a reduced water supply. By participating, you are showing others how, as a business owner, you are directly affected by reduced water allocations. Your presence in this photograph will help
convey the true economic, operational, and human impacts water supply shortages have which continue to diminish agricultural production in the Central Valley. It is our responsibility to tell our story so that this information goes on record in the form of a unique photograph which we hope to turn into billboard messaging.

SHARE THIS MESSAGE WITH OTHERS! Now is the time to show others who don't understand the true effects Central California Businesses for Farmers are facing. This situation demands repair--join with others in providing that message on October 3rd. Thank you for your participation.
