Our Winter Ranch Country Jam was formed 14 years ago by Ross and Sheryl Craft, Don and Jean Countryman, Don and Sharon Donner and Dave and Jody Nunn. This group made all the food for lunch and would ask RGV jammers to come and perform. They put a stage band together. Pam Hoppe and Louie Long are the only remaining original stage band members. Pam tells me that in all that time they never had a picture taken of the group before. I guess it is about time. Chari Heldenbrand took this one of the group at last week’s jam. What a good looking bunch!!

The Winter Ranch Jam has been a real success story thanks to the people that formed the band, the Stage Band, and all the wonderful volunteers who set it up each week and those that provide a tasty variety of lunch selections each week prior to the jam.
