5 Questions for Juanita RamosCCFB Administrative Assistant- Membership & Benefits
What is the best thing about CCFB members? I love speaking to our (elderly) longtime farm bureau members. Speaking with them puts a smile to my face, especially when they start off with, “I’ve been a member since…”. To know that there are people in our county who dedicate their time and interest for so long - it amazes me!
What is a favorite farm or food memory? My favorite food memory is applesauce. When I was a child, I never liked vaccinations (afraid of needles) and so whenever my mom would take me for my checkups, I would cry, but the moment my mom said, “you can have applesauce when we get home as a treat”, my demeanor would change, and just like that, applesauce would make all the pain go away.
When you are not working on CCFB business, what is something you like to spend time doing? I enjoy spending time at festivals, concerts, traveling, and eating at new restaurants. Especially when I’m with family and friends, it makes my time memorable and joyous. I always say, “I need to try things at least once in life”.
What did you want to be growing up? Growing up, I always wanted to be a detective, the thought of investigating and solving crimes is fascinating to me. I guess that’s why I find myself constantly watching crime shows on the I.D Channel, and investigating my own family with Who? What? Where? (Which they don’t appreciate), but I’ll always be MOM. I guess I can say I have a little bit of detective in me.
What is your favorite food? I am a foodie, but my favorite food right now is ‘flautas’. It’s a deep-fried rolled up tortilla, filled with your choice of shredded chicken, beef, steak, or chorizo (Mexican sausage) with potato. What I enjoy most with flautas is the ‘Crunch’ and condiments, lettuce, tomato, onion, sour cream, queso fresco and the salsa to spice it up. Delicious!
