Cattlewomen serve as honorary marshals

The West of the Pecos Cattlewomen were "Honorary Grand Marshals" for the West of the Pecos Parade held on July 3, in downtown Pecos.

The mission of the group is to "support and promote the beef industry." In the organization, women function collectively to inform consumers of the importance of the industry and of the contributions it makes to the economy of our nation.

The Texas Cattle Women bring the best of volunteerism to the beef industry. Together with the American National Cattlewomen, they are in the forefront of beef promotion, education, and legislation in local, state, and national areas.

Local members of The West of the Pecos Cattlewomen include: Emily Fernandes, Mecca Kenney, Alice Lasater, Margaret Lindley, Bobbie Latner, Marcella Lovett, Jeri McAlpine, Fariss Murphy, Catherine Thomas and Hope Wilson.
