The Ohio CattleWomen held their summer meeting at the Vintage Venue near Urbana, Ohio. This venue was very appropriate for our organization. It was of course in a large old barn and decorated with vintage furniture. For our meeting it was also decorated with trophies, ribbons and cattle pictures from passed wins in the cattle field. Melissa Channell is the operator of this venue, she is a cousin of our treasurer, Dona Tullis.
A very nice breakfast buffet started off our day. Marilyn’s Artistry of Alger, Ohio helped each participant create their own masterpiece. Each one painted their own barn picture. There were varying talents within the group, but each person took home their beautiful creations.
A delicious buffet lunch was served in the barn.
After lunch the group moved to another area of the barn for a presentation by Friends of Ohio Barns. Their purpose is to support and promote through education the awareness and understanding of the significance of Ohio’s historic barns within their agricultural and architectural context, and their maintenance requirements. They encourage programs that provide resources for their stewardship and conservation as a lasting icon of our cultural heritage. It was a very interesting and informative presentation.
It was a lovely day out for the Ohio CattleWomen. We try to offer a fun day out each year for all the hard-working Ohio Cattle Women.
