I am excited to kick off this New Year with you! I have a lot to look forward to including more rodeos, high school presentations, and our Boots On The Hill event in Tallahassee. I hope there will be lots of cowboy hats and boots around the capitol! I am also planning to speak at two high schools in Tallahassee, one being my alma mater.

Reyna Hallworth, FCW President

Though I’ve never been big on making a New Year’s resolution, I do appreciate the opportunity the New Year seems to naturally provide for annual self-evaluation.  What is working?  What isn’t?  What needs more time?  What is overdue?  The New Year brings a new fiscal year and installation of new officers for the Florida CattleWomen: excellent timing for our organization to reflect on the effectiveness
