WACO -- Texas Farmers Union announces the 111th convention Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25-26, at the MCM Eleganté Hotel located at 4250 Ridgemont in Abilene. The 2013 convention will be dedicated in loving memory of Mel Cherry.

Opening session of the convention will begin Friday at 6 p.m., preceded by committee meetings at 5:15 p.m. Friday evening’s session will include induction of a new Pioneer in Agriculture. The reception following will have plenty of good food and feature entertainment by the 2012 “Rural American Idols” Clay Mobley, Kadie Robertson, and Rusty Hines.

Speakers include National Farmers Union Vice President Claudia Svarstad and Dr. Harwood Schaffer from the University of Tennessee’s Agriculture Analysis Center.

Policy drafting will begin Saturday at 3 p.m. with special emphasis on the new Farm Bill, water, education, and health care, particularly the sources and adequacy of funding.

There will be special entertainment from one of our own at the Saturday banquet. Makenzie Patton, a descendant of one of our Pioneer Texas Farmers Union families, will bring her group “33 North” to sing for us.

The convention will culminate with a drawing for a quilt and a progressive auction. Proceeds will go to the Farmers Union Charitable Fund.
