  • Hostetler Turkey Giveaway

    Greg Hostetler, a farmer and developer in Merced, gave away 1,000 turkeys and packages of almond this week to those in need in Merced and Los Banos. In the last four years, Hostetler has grown the event in honor of his late wife Cathie, who started the tradition of giving away turkeys more than 30 years ago.
