We had an informative seminar on spring maintenance held by our County Extension Agent, Stephen Janak.  Stephen gave us an overview of his background as well as many resources to use for our spring maintenance here in the Oak Prairie region of Texas, including ways to control grass or sand burrs on our properties.   Stephen’s contact information is below:

There were about 20 property owners present for this seminar.   A delicious continental breakfast was served by Jean Herring.  Thank you, Jean, for all your hard work on all ORWMA’s events and meetings!

Crazy Ant Seminar at Colorado Cty. Ag Center – Dec 1st

Hello fellow landowners:

This is an invitation to attend a program sponsor by Texas A&M about CrazyAnts from our local County Extension Agent, Stephen Janak.   These pesky little ants are harder to get rid of than fire ants; I would highly recommend attending this program.     [Please see linked attachment below for details.]

Thank you,
Vernon Wallace
