ANNOUNCING THE WINNER OF OUR STEER CONTEST!
Katarina Whitson of Salmon, ID is the winner of our Lowline Steer Essay Contest. Congratulations Katarina! We had 10 very worthy applicants which made for some stiff competition. Thank to you all of our applicants. Katarina will be keeping us posted on her progress with her new steer.
Thank you to Bill and Donna Boekel for picking up the steer in Montana and feeding and caring for him for several weeks!
There were 3 positions up for election and only 3 people were nominated for the BOD. So to save time and expense, the board voted to not hold an election since those 3 would be automatically put into place anyway. Congratulations to returning board members: Jacqui Duran and Katherine Wise. Congratulations and a big welcome to David Shockey who will be a new board member beginning on Jan. 1st.
MONTANA ADDED TO WSLA!
We are very excited to announce that Montana is now member of our region. Because of it’s close proximity to Idaho, several Montana members have been involved in WSLA events. Now they can be active members and participate on the BOD and have voting privileges. Previously Montana was part of the Mountain States Lowline Association but that association was not active and officially disbanded a few months ago. Welcome Montana ALR members!
