The Greene County Cattlemen’s Association is hosting its annual banquet Saturday, Feb. 22, at Clover Hall on the Greene County Fairgrounds in Jefferson. This annual event raises funds for many projects in the county.
A new feature is a trade show of ag businesses. Attendees will want to come early, with vendors from around the area showcasing their services beginning at 5:30 pm.
Refreshments will also be available at that time with a social hour planned at 6 pm. A dinner of ribeye steak and all the trimmings will be served at 6:30 pm.
The highlight of the night is the trophy auction. The 4-H trophies for the 2020 Greene County Fair will be sold to the highest bidder. The traveling trophy goes home with the buyer who spends the most money on trophies.
Money raised at the annual banquet and auction goes toward the many projects supported by the Greene County Cattlemen throughout the year. The organization supports a number of 4-H and youth activities and participates in beef promotions at the county, state and national levels.
A scholarship program has been expanded in recent years thanks to the generosity of donors. The Catttlemen are well known across the county, cooking beef at various fund raising events.
Tickets for the evening are $20 each. They can be purchased at the Greene County Extension Office or from the directors Mike Holden, Justin Muir, Patrick Minnehan, Bob Bills, Tom Lawton, Justin Robbins, Tanner Lawton, Brandon Muir, Ben Gannon, Mike Klauer or Derek Kennedy. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
The public is invited to attend and support the beef producers of the county. ~courtesy of The Scranton Journal
