Investing in agriculture’s future

By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
Usually the crowd doesn’t come in until after church, but this year, right when serving started for the steak tip luncheon at 11 a.m., it was busy at the Meridian Civic Center Dec. 14. The North Bosque Youth Support Group, a collaborative organization that supports Future Farmers of America and 4-H youth from Meridian, Iredell, Kopperl and Morgan held its annual fundraiser luncheon, which was a success. Two hundred fifty lunch tickets were sold, as were nearly all raffle tickets for a yeti cooler and a rifle. This money and additional donations is a reinvestment in the students.

Local food pantry adds to CPS Angel Tree Project

By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
It was like a well-oiled production line, with all the cogs working perfectly together. Cranberry sauce, raisins, stuffing, oranges, apples, corn and beans; and added the next day a chicken and fresh rolls – that is what the North Bosque Helping Hands Food Pantry and Brookshire Brothers volunteers were putting into big, brown paper bags with great efficiency on Dec. 12.

Bunch of nuts

By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
Pecan shows are one of the best teaching tools available. They render a real service to the pecan industry. These shows help pecan growers grade and evaluate their standard varieties and the shows acquaint growers with new varieties and the numerous pecan hybrids being developed. In Meridian, the first Pecan Show organized by the Bosque County AgriLife Extension Office was held on Dec. 18 in the Memorial Library Building, to focus attention on the pecan – an important Texas export - and to help promote consumer interest in this product.
