CowBelle of the Year





As Karen tells it, she had the distinct pleasure of meeting the Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen when she was running for a County Supervisor seat.  She subsequently lost that election, but won the friendship and sisterhood of the Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen.  She describes it as serendipity!

            Since joining our unit in 2010, Karen has been a very very active member!  She has enjoyed serving as Vice President for the group for the past four years and has had the enjoyment of traveling to and participating in many CCW conventions and conferences.  Karen admits she has learned a ton about the cattle industry while she herself has no cattle.  She brought the idea of a Craft Committee to our unit in 2015; a committee that specializes in handcrafting items for sale for the benefit of Beef Promotion.  She has also had the pleasure of working on and chairing the Events Committee, which is responsible for fund-raising themed community dinners.  One of her favorite activities is working with the Quilt Committee to produce our annual Scholarship Brand Quilt.  Karen is very proud to represent the Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen and encourages all women to support ranching and agriculture.

            It is with great pleasure and admiration that we present Karen Rickman as our 2016 Cowbelle of the Year!  We appreciate all of your hard work, unending enthusiasm, and commitment!!!
