On the heels of the conclusion of the San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo, volunteers continue to prep the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce grounds for the 55th La Vernia Junior Livestock and Poultry Show. The show, sponsored by the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce, will be held Thursday through Saturday, March 1-3, on the chamber grounds off U.S. 87 in La Vernia.

Youth are the future of our world, and it’s the chamber’s endeavor to assist them in being able to complete their 4-H and FFA projects by securing funds through the auction sale that will help them secure their dream of college or technical school, advancing the education for our next generation of workers.

Baked foods, art

The baked foods show and arts and crafts judging will take place Friday, March 2, with an auction Friday at 4 p.m. in the show arena. Food show entries will be accepted from 9:30-11 a.m., with the judging of the arts and crafts to take place at 10:30 a.m. The baked foods show judging begins at 11:30 a.m.

Food booths, refreshments, exhibits, and arts and crafts booths will be available throughout the show.

A silent auction also will be held, with proceeds to benefit senior scholarships.

Charity Schroeder is serving as hall manager for booth rental. For more information, call 830-534-9241 or Sarah Young at 210-259-9886.

Livestock, poultry

Once again, the livestock show will begin with the rabbit judging Thursday at 7 p.m.

The show continues Friday, with the poultry judging at 8:30 a.m. -- turkeys, followed by broilers. Note, this is a new time for this event.

Lamb and goat judging is set for 10 a.m.

Steers will take center stage at 2 p.m., with the swine judging concluding Friday’s activities at 6 p.m.

The livestock and poultry exhibitors will have their auction on Saturday at noon in the sale arena.

Buyers’ pool

There will be no barbecue meal this year on Saturday, but the hospitality building will be open for auction buyers with sandwiches, snacks, and refreshments starting at 10 a.m. A meet-and-greet with signup of buyers will be held starting at this time with auction sheets and add-ons forms available. The buyers’ pool also will be accepting donations for the 2012 show.

To conclude the festivities, dance to the music of the “Clint Taft Band” from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. The dance is open to the public.

For more information, contact Mark Koepp at 210-288-9889 or Sarah Young at 830-947-3322 or 210-259-9886, or email sandryoung123@gmail.com.
