On Saturday, Nov. 13, Texas Corn Producers (TCP) hosted a night filled with conversations, dancing, and delicious food.
Bryce White, the TCP producer relations director, said Turnrow Tonight was a way to celebrate the end of the harvest season and provide a relaxing way for farmers to engage in conversation about topics such as political advocacy, research, promotion and more.
“The goals of the event were multifaceted,” White said. “It was meant to be a networking opportunity for farmers to connect with other corn farmers around their area. It was also meant for farmers and members of Texas Corn Producers Association to understand what the checkoff and association each do for them.”
The night began with an informative social hour. The networking hour aimed to engage farmers in conversations on TCP’s work through both the checkoff and association. As conversation starters, information about recent efforts success were incorporated into the evening’s decorations. Additionally, board members’ and volunteers’ nametags labeled how they were involved in TCP advocacy efforts to promote natural conversation about the work of the organization. The goal was to encourage the continuation of support and knowledge for what the checkoff and association provides to its members.
To round out the night was a sit-down dinner and music by the Red Clay Strays. Guests were invited to sit and enjoy the music, continue their conversations or join the band out on the dance floor.
The night came to an end with lots of laughs, new friendships, new information, and both deep and lighthearted conversations.
