On January 6th the FCW held our 8th annual clay shoot at Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee. I would like to thank everyone who came out to support our fundraiser, for youth scholarships. It was a cold day, but we had great attendance. Thank you to all the volunteers that pull together every year to make this a huge success.
State Fair is just around the corner. FCW has a booth promoting beef everyday of the fair from February 8th thru February 19th, and we are looking for volunteers to promote our product and hand out samples. Please email Tami Newsome at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. Tami has spent several years working and setting this event up to make it a huge hit with fair goers. Thank you Tami Newsome!
Our membership contest is underway. Whoever recruits the most new members from January 1st thru June 1st will win our top prize of $1000.00 cattlewomen and cattlemen are both eligible to win. Also a special drawing to win a 400 gallon feed tank donated by Dura Cast Products in Lake Wales and Westway will fill the tank at your location with liquid feed.
