Hilton Receives Lifetime Membership in Farm Council

Red Wing Software President Ken Hilton receives a plaque from Brenda Duckworth, Farm Financial Standards Council president, marking Hilton being given Emeritus Lifetime Membership status with the organization. He was cited for his years of involvement with, leadership, and support of the mission of the Council. The presentation was made during the organization’s annual conference held in Amarillo, TX, on July 29, 2021. The Farm Financial Standards Council was formed in 1989 as a result of the ‘farm crisis’ of the 80s. Its mission is to provide information and tools to help ranchers and farmers and their financial recordkeepers develop sound financial management information on their respective operations.

Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

In observance of the United States national holiday – Labor Day – our offices will be closed on September 6th. Every year when Labor Day comes around, it reminds me of my father’s example regarding work ethics. He worked for John Deere for around 26 years, most of those as a United Auto Workers union member. One of the things that impressed me was his determination to be at work – every day – on time. I remember him leaving early enough for work, that if he had a flat tire on the way, he had time to change it and still punch in before his shift started. This is just one example of many that shaped my siblings and me while growing up. While Labor Day was originally the idea of labor unions in the late 1800s, I believe it applies to all people who work for a living, no matter their choice of profession.
The last paragraph on the United States Department of Labor website about the history of Labor Day says it all: “The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation's strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.”
Have a safe Labor Day weekend.
