The Will James Society donates sets of Will James books through local groups. Black Mesa CattleWomen sponsored one of these donations. On Jan. 27, Black Mesa CattleWomen Jeannetta Hotchkiss and Shelley Clement delivered a set to students at Paonia Elementary School. Students could hardly wait for Jeannette Honeydew, the Paonia librarian, to begin checking the books out. Chandra Carr and Heidi Simpson delivered a set of the books to Hotchkiss Elementary School.
