Each year, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Bosque County and the Commissioners Court host a Volunteer Recognition Banquet to recognize outstanding volunteers who serve the residents of Bosque County. These volunteers give their time and energy to serve in civic and community organizations and to improve our communities. The Volunteer Recognition Banquet is a special time to honor these extraordinary volunteers.
