Overton Co. Cattlemen’s Association Fundraising For Scholarships Friday

A steak sandwich, chips, dessert and drink for $10.

That is what the Overton County Cattlemen’s Association is offering at Friday’s fundraiser. Secretary Jason Garrett said all the money goes towards the organization’s  scholarship fund.

“The Overton County Cattlemen’s Association uses the proceeds for this fund raiser to award each year two scholarships to two high school individuals from Livingston Academy interested in agriculture for their future college,” Garrett said.

Garrett said the event begins at 11:00 a.m. and is located between Hardees and the Holt Pharmacy Building on Main Street. Garrett said there is enough food to serve 1,200 serve sandwiches.

“They have their own cooker, home made cookers, rib eyes marinated. Very good steak,” Garrett said. “We usually sell out pretty quick.”

Garrett said members of the association look forward to the event each year and are excited to serve delicious food while helping the youth.

“The association here is made up of some dedicated, interested beef cattle producers,” Garrett said. “We have about 15 directors, and they will all be there working and helping prepare the meals. Boxing, cooking and keeping the ice on the drinks.”

Last year the fundraiser was cancelled, so Garrett said the association is wishing for a good turn out to keep the scholarship alive.
