A display showcasing the message of National Ag Week, which was celebrated March 13-19, 2011, is set up in the Mason County M. Bevan Eckert Memorial Library. The display provided by Hill Country Cattlewomen will remain in the Gipson Room at the library for two weeks.
To promote agricultural literacy, the Hill Country Cattlewomen have donated two children’s books to the Mason Library, Armadilly Chili by Helen Ketteman is a retelling of the familiar story of the Little Red Hen in a rural, western setting, and Henrietta King: Rancher and Philanthropist by Judy Alter is a biography on a fourth grade reading level. The latter is part of "The Stars of Texas" Series.
Pictured in front of the National Ag Week display is Hill Country Cattlewoman Maribelle Hoerster presenting the donated books to Mason Librarian Patti Grote.
