Welcome to Henderson County Livestock Show
  HCLS General Membership Meeting
May 11, 2015 7:00 pm at TVCC Ranch Management Building.
The 55th Annual Henderson County Livestock Show is just around the corner, with the dates of this year’s event occurring April 6- 11, 2015! As a result, the members of the Henderson County Livestock Show Association have been working diligently to ensure that our 2015 show will be another huge success!!

After receiving rave reviews last year regarding the absence of gate fees, these fees for the 2015 Henderson County Livestock Show will once again be taken care of, thanks to our very generous gate sponsors. Our sponsors this year that will be allowing for your complimentary gate fees at the 2015 HCLS are as follows:

Monday /Tuesday – AQUA Texas
Wednesday – MooYah/Schlotzsky’s & Moorelicious
Thursday – Lone Star Western & Casual
Friday – Benson’s Eats & Treats

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 addition, there will be a slight change in the procedure that we will be handling the sales of shavings to be utilized at this year’s show for our exhibitors. It has been decided by the HCLS Board of Directors and the Henderson County Fair Park Board, that we will not be allowing shavings to be brought into the fairgrounds the week of the show. Instead, we will be offering flaked and pelleted shavings for sale on the grounds for $6.00 per bag. This decision was made due to the fact that the Henderson County Fair Board fully donates the use of this facility for the week of the HCLS, and has respectfully asked that we allow them to provide shavings for sale as a result of this generous donation of these facilities. Of course, we said yes! So, out of respect for this generous donation of the fairgrounds facility to our association, we would please ask that you respect this decision and plan on purchasing your shavings after arriving at the show.

Finally, I would like to once again say a big THANK YOU to the numerous volunteers that work diligently to make our show what it has become today. You may think that a show of this nature “just happens”. On the contrary my friends, the countless hours of planning, preparation, and work that takes place behind the scenes, is second to none, and without the commitment of this volunteer aspect of our show, the Henderson County Livestock Show would cease to exist as we know it today!!

On behalf of the Henderson County Livestock Show Association Membership and Board of Directors, we welcome you to the 2015 HCLS, and we will look forward to seeing all of our exhibitors on April 6th for the kickoff of this year’s show!!
