Cowbelles Booth 463 at Tucson Festival of Books

Please spread the word with Cowbelles-Cattlewomen, Cowboys, Families and Friends.
The Tucson Cowbelles have been assigned booth 463 at the Tucson Festival of Books, March 2-3, 2019. We will see how well this location
works for us.  It is way east on the UofA Mall, right off Cherry Street. In previous years we were close to the UofA Books Store and the
Student Union. This year we will be off Cherry near the Flantrau Planitarium. We will keep our fingers crossed that this is an excellent
location for our booth – we will just have to wait and see.  The closest garage to park will be the parking garage off Cherry near the
UofA Football Stadium. You can enter the garage off Campbell on a street near the swimming pool and the McKale Center. This
garage will be just about 2 block south of the UofA Mall.
We already have several volunteers for Saturday, but are still needing ladies for Sunday. If you can spare a few hours to help promote
beef, hand out beef sticks and visit with the public about our beef product, ranching, livestock, the environment and our way of life,
we would sure appreciate your help.
See you at the Tucson Festival of Books, Booth #463 where we will feature the new Arizona Ranch Raised Kids books.
