Mr. Gene Ross was honored during the 61st Annual Polk County Championship Rodeo held last weekend for his 34 years of dedicated volunteer service to the Polk County Rodeo Board. The presentation was made following the Grand Entry on the first night of the rodeo. Ross is a very familiar face and the backbone of an event that has spanned over six decades.
Many volunteers booted and rode out to the Polk County Fairgrounds to make sure the 2014 Handi-Capable Rodeo was another success!
Held at the Andy Risenhoover Arena Friday, August 8, volunteers and organizers brought smiles and joy to the county’s very Handi-Capable! These cowgirls and cowboys of all ages showed their grit and enthusiasm for life as they danced, rode horses, roped, and bucked a barrell bull.
