The Grant County Copper CowBelles held their monthly meeting on March 19th. Newly installed President Annette George conducted the meeting and the February minutes were approved.
The Farm Bureau sponsored Ag Days were cancelled due to weather and will be rescheduled for May. Planning for the Cash Party is going well but more silent auction items are needed. It was decided to create a planning committee for the Fall Shindig, leaving the how, when and where decisions up to the committee. It has been simplified to a dance-only event in the hopes of having a fun evening for the community without all the hard work. Reminders were made for the District III Workshop in Glenwood and the McKeen Ranch Days in April.
A vote was made for a thank you gift for out-going President Deborah van Tellingen and a $250 donation to the NM Ag in the Classroom Foundation was approved. The Silver City Public Library has inquired whether Copper would like to make a display for the public to view this Fall. Use of a display case for a month would be made available for beef information and CowBelle history. The “box” for hosting receptions for memorial services has been inventoried. Members were asked to provide various items. The items needed for serving food, coffee, napkins, plates etc. will be restocked after each event.
