|hcls mEETING - sEPTEMBER 14, 2015|
|Well, after another successful close to our 55th annual show, the 56th Annual Henderson County Livestock Show is now set for April 4-9, 2016! This being the case, the Henderson County Livestock Show Association has already begun working diligently to ensure that our 2016 show will be another huge success!!
This being the case, I would personally like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest THANK YOU to all of our 2015 Project Buyers and our countless volunteers! Without the continued support of our loyal buyers and our tremendous volunteer network, our Annual Henderson County Livestock Show has become one of the most successful Livestock Shows in the entire State of Texas! For that, I am truly grateful!!
|Furthermore, we once again received rave reviews regarding the absence of gate fees in 2015, as these fees for the 2015 Henderson County Livestock Show were once again taken care of, thanks to our very generous gate sponsors!!
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.
We also received fantastic reviews regarding 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. We realize that it is 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. As a result, this will now become an annual tradition for the HCLS!
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!!
As a reminder, our General Membership meetings take place every other month, on the second Monday of the month, at the TVCC Agricultural Building on the TVCC Main Campus. If you would like to become more involved in our association, or would like to volunteer to assist us in any manner, please give us a call or contact one of our members. We would love to have you become more involved!!
On behalf of the Henderson County Livestock Show Association Membership and Board of Directors, we thank you again for a great 2015 show and wish you all the best of luck for our upcoming show in 2016!
Sincerely, J. Quade – President/HCLS Association
