CALPINE, Calif. — In September of 1966, the Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen’s organization was formed by a group of ranchers’ wives who wanted to be more involved in the cattle industry. They focus their efforts on beef promotion and “Ag in the Classroom,” offering an annual quilt raffle, which funds annual scholarships.

PSCW made their first brand quilt in 1977. The annual quilt raffle raises money for scholarships to local students in Plumas and Sierra Counties. The quilt is hand made with hand embroidered, local registered brands from the counties.

The group started out as “Cowbells’” and adopted Cattlewomen in 1988 to be consistent with the California Cattlewomen.

A special dinner, “A Taste of Spring,” will feature a full three-course meal on Saturday, May 4. Social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. A Taste of Spring will be held at the Calpine Community Center, 103 County Road, Calpine, Calif. The menu will include beef Burgundy, spring mix salad, mashed potatoes, carrots, fresh baked rolls, fresh fruit dessert, and cookies. There will be a raffle for themed baskets, live music, and the 2013 Quilt tickets will be available for sale.

Cost is $12.50 per adult and $6 per child.

For information and tickets call Paula at 530-994-3610 or Karen at 530-993-1655.
