The Maryland Angus Women's Club was one the first Angus auxiliaries in the country. It preceded the American Angus Auxiliary by a couple of years having been organized in 1956-57. The Club's main mission is to aid and fund the auxiliary scholarships for the state and be a support system to the Maryland Junior Angus Association.
The Women's Club is also responsible for choosing the Maryland Angus Queen and Princess every year. The Queen and Princess represent the state on behalf of the Maryland Angus Association and Maryland Junior Angus Association at many shows and sales around the country.
Our fundraising activities have included over the years, serving meals at sales and the junior preview shows, basket bingo, a Ways and Means booth, the sale of cheese and chances on our Wheelbarrow of Gourmet Cheer. We have provided funds for over 100 scholarships. We have also hosted and supported Royalty activities at many Eastern Regional Junior shows and the Atlantic National Angus Show in Timonium.
It is safe to say that our group is small but our efforts have always been large! It's difficult to measure the success of the Maryland Angus Women's Club without including the success of our Juniors. In the final analysis, that is what we are all about.
