The Fourth Annual Hogathon for our Child Welfare Board was this weekend. The wonderful and generous donors from Eddie Speed’s Note School, led by our own David Fenoglio, visited Montague County and enjoyed hunting and being entertained and fed by David’s band of assistants. Hog hunting and visiting in the country with old friends were in order. 

Serving breakfast to the group Saturday morning at the Chism Brown Ranch were CWB Board members Sheriff Paul Cunningham, Clint Brown, Ron Brown, Paul Stanley, and Dick Crist (not pictured)
