Angus Legacies on Display in Association Entryway
“Building an Angus Legacy” Phase I complete after spring and summer construction.
Angus breeders who left their legacy at the American Angus Association® headquarters, through purchasing a granite paver or planter, can now see the new walkway in full completion. Construction that began in January 2014 has come to an end with the landscaping installation in the past few weeks.
“It has been exciting to watch Phase I of this project progress,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “What makes the walkway special and meaningful are the planters and pavers that will carry on the legacies of current and past Angus breeders, family farms and ranches, and state associations. Those who have chosen to pay tribute show the impact the Angus breed has on them and our members.”
To celebrate the completion of Phase I, a ribbon cutting to will take place at 1 p.m., Monday, Nov. 3 before tours of the Association begin, prior to the 2014 Angus Means Business National Convention and Trade Show.
“The granite pavers, planters and updated landscaping provide a beautiful entrance to the Association headquarters for members when they visit,” says Chris Stallo, Association vice president of operations. “It is great to see Phase I of the Angus Foundation’s Building an Angus Legacy project come to a completion.”
Look for information about Phase II of Building an Angus Legacy on Oct. 1. For more information visit www.angusfoundation.org or call 816-383-5100.
