Accomplishments

In keeping with the mission and purpose we have been able to provide the use of our facilities to the local 4H and FFA clubs valuing over $4,000 per year, assist annually with Pecan Classic and the Guadalupe County Youth Show by discounting our facilities over $4000 per year and purchase over $3000 in show projects directly from the youth that participate. We believe these organizations and purchases are worthy of the support and are instrumental in the development of a strong future for this community.

In addition we were able to award four scholarships to deserving students totaling $5,500 as well as donating $500 and challenging other local companies to match us in helping to send the 4H Livestock Judging Team to the International contest in Scotland, Ireland and England for the Royal Highlander Show.
