(Aug. 6, 9:05 a.m.) The Texas Produce Convention has set a new date and location — Sept. 18-20 at the McAllen Convention Center.

The annual convention, originally scheduled for Aug. 21-24 at South Padre Island, was postponed due to damage to the Sheraton Beach Resort on South Padre Island, sustained during Hurricane Dolly in late July.

Mission-based Texas Citrus Mutual and Texas Vegetable Association, organizers of the event, said a more detailed schedule and hotel information will be available soon.

The Texas Produce Association also sponsors the annual convention.
