Do you enjoy running or maybe a brisk walk in the morning to get your day going? Then make sure you bring your running shoes and are up early Saturday morning! The Texas Beef Council will be sponsoring a Fun Walk/Run of distances one to three miles of a marked course starting at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel through the Stockyards.
The TSCRA Cattle Raisers Convention will open with the First General Session at 10 a.m. with speakers Sonny Perdue, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture (invited) and author, John O’Leary. Lunch will be in the Exhibit Hall at the trade show or you may want to venture out and grab a bite on your own, just be sure that you are back by 1 p.m. for the Texas CattleWomen General Session!
TCW General Session will include the Treasurer’s report, Committee reports, and Local reports, oh, my! As well as updates from Misty Martin with Texas Beef Council and the Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Reception – make sure you get those nominations to Vicki Miller of Hill Country CattleWomen by March 1st! We will finish out our meeting with new business and selection of the Nominating Committee. One of the most important action items that are on the agenda will be the consideration and approval of several proposed updates and changes to the current TX CattleWomen By-Laws as well as the Policies and Procedures Manual.
After a long day of learning and shaping the future of our wonderful organization, grab your dancing boots and enjoy an exceptional beef dinner and being with your fellow cattlemen and cattlewomen at the largest party of cattle producers while listening to the tunes of Jake Hooker and the Outsiders and Summer Dean.
To end the weekend, you can listen to the ministering of Jeff Gore at Cowboy Church at 7:30 a.m. and at 9 a.m. TSCRA will have their Closing General Session Brunch with Nick Adams.
Ladies, this is an event you don’t want to miss!
As a new face on the executive committee, I hope that you all can make it out to Fort Worth and see what TX CattleWomen is doing and the big events we have planned to make sure the business of beef has a voice.
See you in Cowtown!
