We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyine who volunteered to assist with the 25th anniversary of the Iowa Junior High and High School Rodeo held in Estherville on May 5 and 6. Without your help the rodeo would not have been a success this year. We didn't have to worry about the dust this year, but the temperatures were mild. The rain didn't dampen the spirit of the contestants at all. The contestants enjoy the enthusiasm showed to them from our community. The contestants and their families feel very welcomed in Estherville. Thank you to Estherville and the surrounding area.
