The 56th annual Henderson County Livestock Show is scheduled April 4-9, 2016. We are ready for the most exciting week of the year for all the FFA and 4H members in Henderson County. Another year of feeding, walking, grooming and caring for animal projects comes to an end. Months of welding, cutting and fabricating shop projects are over and it’s time for the judging to begin.
The Henderson County Livestock Show Association is excited to invite everyone to come out to the Henderson County Fair Park Complex to enjoy and support the efforts of all these students. What you won’t see is the thousands of hours they, their families, the FFA Advisors, 4H Leaders and all the volunteers have given to help make this a wonderful week.
We are very excited to have local businesses who have pledged to be gate sponsors so there will be no gate fees to pay to enter the fairgrounds. Our sponsors are:
Monday/Tuesday – AquaTexas
When you have the opportunity, please frequent these businesses as often as you can, and thank them for their generous support of our organization by providing this service.
In 2015 we held our First Annual Senior Night Reception, and would like to thank Wal-Mart for providing all of the supplies for our meal that night, and to Mr. Jeff Cade for providing/donating his catering services to prepare and serve the meal. This year, Jeff Cade will be cooking again and Elder Dodge will be sponsoring the reception. We realize this a very emotional time for our seniors who are completing their show careers, and we want to make certain that our senior exhibitors and parents know how extremely proud we are of these students and want to formally recognize their dedication to our show and our local agricultural programs. This will be an annual event for the HCLS!
Thank you and we hope to see you at the show!
