Letter to the Editor: Great fairgrounds

To the editor:

The Wasco County Fairgrounds have become home to Rodeo Bible Camp of Oregon since 1994, and this year we hosted our 20th camp. Volunteers from all over Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Texas, Canada, as well as California and other parts of our country, have been a big part of the success of these camps. It take s a big crew to minister the love of Jesus, while teaching rodeo events and hosting two rodeos to over 100 kids in a week.

The RBCO board of directors would like to take this time to thank the Wasco County Fair Board, especially the grounds keeper, Sid Moss, for keeping these facilities in great shape. Sid goes above and beyond for us in many ways, and we so appreciate his hard work and efforts in preparing the grounds and being on call for us when we are there.

We would also like to thank the area churches for providing homemade cookies for our late-night snacks

The Paulson Family, the Schaffelds and many others from Wasco County support and help this camp continue to be a success. We’ll be back next year (starting on Father’s Day weekend) to the beautiful oasis in Tygh Valley, once again bringing words of hope, direction and rodeo instruction to our youth.

Thank you, Wasco County.

RBCO Directors Rod Hershey

Powell Butte and three others
