Town Talk

The Parmer County Steak Dinner is set for Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the XIT community center in Bovina. The steak dinner is a fund raiser to support the students who show at the Parmer County Stock show. The money raised is distributed to all the kids who show an animal at the stock show. Last year each participant received $122.46. One of the highlights of the dinner is the ticket drawing that gives you the chance to win cash. The last ticket left in the hopper is the big winner for the night. This year, in addition to the ticket drawing, Dan Patterson will perform during the meal. Tickets are $100.00 each for two people. The meal includes steak, potatoes, corn, green beans, a roll, and banana pudding. To purchase tickets contact Chris Timms, 265-5039, Tracy Bunker, 683-1319, or Greg O’Brian, 265-5775. (more...)
