NETLA Board Meets Monday Night
by: Bobby McDonald
The Northeast Texas Livestock Association Board met on Monday night, in the Sulphur Springs Vocational Agriculture Building to make the final plans for the upcoming Youth Market Show, scheduled for February 21-23, 2013. "This is the last meeting before the show," warned NETLA President, Kevin Gibson. "It's time for it once again!"
Committee reports were received and all plans are in order for each of the species shows, with judges lined-up and entries received. The Sale Committee reported making community contacts and it was reported that students are already sending out buyer letters and selling raffle tickets in the community.
The Sale of Champions will be on Saturday, February 23rd, in the Civic Center Arena, with the sale order being published at the completion of the show on Friday night.
The Buyer's Luncheon is planned and ready to be hosted at First Baptist Church Gym.
Following Monday night's meeting, cake was served to the board in recognition of the retirement of North Hopkins Vocational Agriculture Teacher and NETLA Board Member, Johnny Lennon.
