Friends and Family Fest

The inaugural Friends and Family Fest - A Shale-abration! was held at the Guernsey County Fairgrounds in Old Washington, Ohio on Saturday, May 10, 2014.                                    

It was a celebration of our Natural Resources and Homegrown Energy Production in the Heart of the Utical Shale.  Community and Education were the driving forces behind the festival. Our hope is that every attendee came away with a better understanding of the industry and energy production, distribution and usage.  It was also a chance for the industry to meet and greet eachother and network!

Many THANKS to our Sponsors - we hope to see you next year!  Click here for a list of 2014 Sponsors.
