Following the shoot, OCA will hold a Summer Business Meeting at Leeds Farm in Ostrander, Ohio to discuss proposed amendments to the OCA bylaws. The business meeting is free to attend and open to all OCA members. 

Later that evening attendees can gather in their boots and hats for dinner, drinks, and dancing in the barn at the first Cattlemen’s Gala Celebration and Fundraiser also at Leeds Farm. 

The evening will feature live music from the John D. Hale Band, a nationally known Red Dirt music group from Missouri. Silent and live auctions will be held during the evening to support youth scholarships. Sponsorship opportunities for all events are also available.
