“Kick up your heels” at event

The Meeker Chamber of Commerce has partnered with local energy companies, Friends of the FFA and the Meeker FFA chapter to give you the annual After Birth Ball! With an evening of eating, dancing and live entertainment, you don’t want to miss this fantastic community event.
This year’s ball will be held at the Fairfield Center (200 Main St.) on May 21 at 6 p.m.
Long considered one of Meeker’s favorite and largest social events, the After Birth Ball signifies the end of a long cold winter; specifically the conclusion of calving and lambing season. It also gives community members the chance to “let down their hair” and relax before the summer labor begins. Perhaps more aptly described as the “after the birth” ball, this event is known to be a “kicking good time,” complete with dinner, dancing and great socializing.
Come at 6 p.m. for social hour, hosted by the Meeker Lions Club. During this time participants will have the opportunity to view educational displays and take a trip down memory lane as members of the Meeker FFA Chapter will have historical scrapbooks, photo albums and information about agriculture education on display in the Fairfield Center lobby.
You won’t want to pass up the FFA fundraiser dinner served from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This scrumptious dining experience comes to you courtesy of the Friends of the FFA alumni group, featuring Ben Rogers’ tri-tip beef, Todd Morris’ roasted pig, large baked potatoes, rolls by Lori Kendall, homemade desserts courtesy of the Meeker FFA Chapter, salad and non-alcoholic beverages. This is one dinner you don’t want to miss! For only $35 per couple, $20 for individuals and $10 for kids 10 and under you can get a great meal for an affordable price.
From 8 p.m. to midnight, Coy Keithley and the band Straight Shot will be performing live. Featured at the RBC Stock Growers banquet for the last two years, this country band is ready to rock the house. Make sure to stay for this free dance, brought to you by the Meeker Chamber of Commerce. It’s a great way to chase the winter blues away!
So mark May 21, on your calendar, stop by the Meeker Chamber of Commerce, Meeker General Mercantile or see your local FFA member to get your dinner tickets and come prepared to party the night away at the second annual, “after the birth” After Birth Ball!
