The Thayer County Livestock Feeders Association will hold its annual banquet and dance this week at the fairgrounds activity center in Deshler. A meal, awards, dance and entertainment are on tap as the organization takes a look at what was accomplished in 2012.
During the annual meeting, new officers will be installed including new president Tim Koch of Daykin.
The annual meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. with a prime rib meal, will feature cowboy poet Ron Wilson. Wilson performs all original poetry in full costume, complete with audience participation. Says the ‘poet lariat,’ “The poetry is fun, family-oriented, patriotic, relates extremely well with rural audiences, and most of the time, it even rhymes.”
Tickets are available from the Thayer County Extension Office, all Thayer County banks and all Feeders directors.
