UPRA and Many Volunteers Host
Handicapable Rodeo, Friday Morning
by: Bobby McDonald
It was a day of fun for a group of area residents that don't always get to enjoy many of the pleasures in life, that most of us take for granted! Friday was the annual Handcapable Rodeo, hosted in the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center Arena, by UPRA, SSHS Key Club, and a host of other volunteers.
"The Handicapable Rodeo is one of the highlights of our year!" expressed Emily Petty, President of the SSHS Key Club. "Our members enjoy coming out and helping make it a very special day for these youth, who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate, and we go home the beneficiaries of spending a day with them!"
Youth participants were involved in a number of games, horseback riding, face-painting, roping, and other activities, at a number of stations, located throughout the arena.
The UPRA Finals Rodeo will unfold on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, with the new 2012 Champions being named after the Sunday performance.
