The National FFA Alumni hosted a Regional Development Conference here in Hermiston last Saturday. The group spent the day at Armand Larive Middle School here in town.
I helped with registration in the morning, and then went back to the ranch to help with doctoring calves and doing other stuff that just takes more time to do in the cold.
I heard the conference was really good - and I am glad!
But what I thought was super fun, was the dinner we hosted the night before at the Walchli's. John & Marjorie graciously opened up their entertaining space to us on Friday evening and it was a great spot for a fun dinner!
Spoo BBQ'ed tri-tip and his famous potatoes, and I did a trio of salads.
Tomatoes w/ feta & cilantro and a cilantro dressing, pesto orzo w/ kalamata olives & tomatoes and Caesar salad.
I think if John had been there, he'd tell everyone that the polar bear is his pride & joy of all of his hunting trophies. Lacey & Maddee thought they'd join in on the posing fun. :)
Thanks to all of the FFA Alumni members who came out for dinner.
It was a pleasure to host you!
