Farm Bureau Takes 600 People to Dinner

As part of its big marketing convention, a local insurance agency took nearly 600 people out to dinner in Traverse City. Farm Bureau Insurance had what they call “a dine-around” at nine restaurants. Guests from around the state were bused from the Grand Traverse Resort to downtown. The restaurants range from brew pubs and bistros to elegant dining. The company holds the convention in Traverse City every year, but this year it wanted to make a special effort to support downtown businesses. The marketing convention wraps up tomorrow.
