GUYMON, Okla. â€“ Each May the largest community in the Oklahoma Panhandle hosts nearly 1,000 of the best athletes ProRodeo has to offer, from world champion cowboys and cowgirls to the outstanding bucking beasts.
The key ingredient in the magnitude and scope of such an event is the group of community volunteers that tackle every task, from raising funds to cleaning the facilities and handling all matters in between. It takes thousands of man hours to get everything ready, much less the work it takes during the seven straight days of rodeo competition in Texas County, Okla.
March is American Red Cross month and this year, they are celebrating their 125th year of service.
Director of the local Red Cross Theresa Boyd wished to give a recap of services the local chapter was able to provide the community throughout 2010.
"This makes me very proud to have such an active chapter in our area and we are more fortunate than other areas that do not have a chapter to offer these services," said Boyd. "However, our chapter would not remain active and involved with our community if it wasn't for the support coming from each and every one of you!"
