I hope this newsletter finds all of you healthy and happy. I know as we wind down, it has been filled with a lot of ups and downs. Some of you in our areahave been blessed with too much rain; where others have not received much at all.
In our longhorn organization, we have been very busy with the sale, shows, and fundraisers. We do want to thank all of you who have donated money to our yuth for them to go to the ITLA National Show in Texas. We helped seven youth pay for their trip; which says a lot about our organization. This money was raised by fundraisers and donations; all tremendously appreciated. We are about to end the year with our annual banquet. It will be held on November 16th at the Elks Lodge in Hagerstown Maryland. We would love to see all of you there! This year we plan on having great food, award recognitions, elections, and anual board meeting with lots of fun socializing. Additionally, there will be a silent and live auction. Any and all donations for these auctions would be appreciated. Last year, we had some special donations that included Pappy's Peach! I am hoping this year to include some of these as well. I hope to see you at the banquet.
The latest newsletter contains some of our show results, election information, banquet information, and the herdsman & spirit awards nomination forms. Let's end this year with a big bang!
See you there!
