The Grant County Copper CowBelles met on June 18th at the El Grito Headstart school building. Lunch was provided by the El Grito staff. President Annette George conducted the meeting. She provided a cake to celebrate Bobbie Neal Little’s birthday, hostess prizes were provided by Joyce Biebelle.
Pat reported that the “June is Beef Month” advertisement was placed with Grantcountybeat.com and submitted an invoice. The rodeo event at the Silver City Museum received good coverage on the front page of the Silver City Press with credit going to Copper for their contributions to the event. It was voted to make a donation to the Pat Nowlin Scholarship in memory of Arley Howard, a former member. Several Get Well cards were passed around for signatures.
Kathy Davis took final orders for personalized aprons and showed the designs that will be on the ones donated to local chefs that specialize in beef dishes. Copper has received a $500 donation from the NM Gas Company. We thank member Lori Nell Reed for nominating us for this award. Some of this money will be used for ordering supplies for the Grant County Fair in September. It was approved to donate a buckle to the 4H Livestock Judging event at the Fair. Donations will also be made to two local FFA chapters.
As there is no July meeting, the group will meet again in August.
