Carla Willhoit was a founding member of TCLA. Shown above, she is presenting one of her annual donations to Treasurer Gwen Pelfrey and 2011 TCLA President Wayne Petersen.

Templeton resident George R. Hearst Jr. supported TCLA's goal to build a town library with his early donation of $100,000. He was a man who personified Ag education and business acumen as an astute cattle rancher. His career success and quiet manner were steeped in cowboy traditions. When Templeton Library is completed, a reading nook with cowhide rug will be dedicated to this savvy horseman.
