County Farm Women Hold Christmas Banquet

Fulton County Society of Farm Women finished their 50th year with the annual Christmas banquet, held Sunday at Fort Family Restaurant in Fort Littleton.

Mary (Gordon) Richards is pictured above lighting a candle to start the evening. She is a charter member of Group I in Fulton County and has been an active member, a group officer and a state director during the past 50 years.

The county group was chartered in October 1959 and a 50th anniversary convention was held May 2. Members meet monthly in each other’s homes, with short trips, guest speakers, games and crafts. A benefit auction is held each fall.

This year, donations were made to Fulton County Food Basket, to Treasures for Kids (conducted by Fulton County Catholic Mission in partnership with Fulton County Services for Children and advisory board and the local chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority), and to Camp Cadet.
