Lifetree topic is trade wars Tuesday

The potential impact of ongoing trade negotiations will be discussed Tuesday at noon and 7 p.m. at Lifetree Cafe, 18 S. Third St.

The program, titled “In the News: Trade Wars,” features a filmed interview with Jerry Schmitz, a soybean farmer who’s concerned about the potential impact current trade negotiations may have on crop prices and foreign markets.

“It’s absolutely essential that we have export markets,” Schmitz says in the interview. “As an example, in the United States, every third row of soybeans grown leaves the country.”

During the program, participants will have an opportunity to share their viewpoints on current efforts to renegotiate trade deals. Admission to the 60-minute event is free.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
