To the Editor:Please let me introduce myself and express our appreciation. I am Kathy Allen of Granby and I am the newly elected president of the Middle Park Fair & Rodeo Board. I will be serving a 2-year term along with Vice President Mark Horn; Treasurer Hannah Menhennet; Secretary Matt Friesen, and Rodeo Superintendent Paula Noonen. Please accept our appreciation for the great coverage that the Sky-Hi Daily News provided for our 2008 County Fair, Rodeo, and 4-H events.The Demolition Derby continues to be a community favorite. In 2008 we had over 20 vendors selling food and merchandise. Middle Park Fair & Rodeo hosted a CPRA rodeo bringing in the 3rd largest number of contestants in the state of Colorado.New to our schedule was our first Junior Rodeo with over 150 youth event entries. We were able to furnish youth events including kids games, bounce house, inflatable slide, and carnival games. This thank you is extended to all the folks in our community that stepped up to volunteer, sponsor, organize all of the events, and support the livestock sale. Our goal is to continue to expand our youth venues while providing a safe family atmosphere with quality entertainment. We invite the community to visit the 2009 Middle Park Fair & Rodeo August 3rd – 9th. Our board meetings are the 2nd Monday of each month and our Planning Meetings are the Thursday prior to all board meetings.
