County 4-H rodeo set for weekend

Freedom New Mexico

The 2009 Quay County 4-H Rodeo is scheduled Friday and Saturday at the Quay County Fairgrounds.

The event helps raise funds for the local 4-H Council, said Brenda Bishop, Quay County 4-H council advisor.

“The event gives our kids a local stage to perform on,” Bishop said.

Bishop said 51 people have registered for the rodeo events and 43 have registered for the horse show.

“This event draws in 4-Hers from across the state,” Bishop said. “It gives our residents a chance to see what their youth have been working on.”

The rodeo begins at 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children.

The horse show begins at 7 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Admission to the horse show is free
