LLANO — If you’ve every had to attend an “end-of-the-year” review, you know how dry they can be with someone telling the audience about all the accomplishments during the past 12 months. If you’re lucky, they might even include a nice PowerPoint presentation with a few colorful slides.

But if you’re really lucky, you could be attending the 15th annual Llano County/Texas A&M AgriLife Banquet on Aug. 6 where you'll not only learn about the incredible achievements of the county service and 4-H during the past year but also enjoy grilled sirloin steaks and incredible live music featuring local singer McKenzie Jones. All you have to do is RSVP by July 31 to reserve a seat.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. To RSVP, call the Llano County AgriLife Extension office at (325) 247-5159 or email

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of Llano County and the Llano County Leadership Advisory Board are sponsoring the banquet, which is 6 p.m. in the activity center at St. James Lutheran Church, 1401 Ford St.

Everyone is invited to the banquet, whether or not they participate in an extension activity.

The Llano County Extension Service just wants to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments and share the county’s achievements with the community. The service also will recognize those who have made a difference within the Llano County Extension Service programs the past year.

Llano County AgriLife Extension agent Jamie Osbourn and couple of others are serving up some sirloin steaks from Cooper’s BBQ. And they’ll have a mess of other fixings.

McKenzie Jones, a local singer and member of the Llano County 4-H, will perform during the banquet. Jones has developed a strong musical resume, even though she’s only 11 years old. Go to to learn more about her.

But whatever you do, make it a point to check out the banquet. Go to for more information on the Llano County AgriLife Extension Service programs.
