The youth rodeos will be starting at the end of this month and all together we expect to prepare about 900 bags. If you would like to promote your business by putting a coupon in these bags, you may send us as many coupons as you wish and we will divide them among the three rodeo finals. Deadline to do so is May 16 and the coupons may be as small as three by four inches.
When the Amtrak Train was stopped in Harwood last Thursday because of a bomb threat, a Gonzales County person was on board. Barbara Jo Brothers had decided to ride the train from Austin to New Orleans, never dreaming that she’d get to layover in beautiful downtown Harwood for some five hours. We hear they caught the person who called in the threat and didn’t find a bomb, so the train finally continued on its way.
The Three & One-half Amigos/Central Texas Cutters will host a used tack auction on May 12 at the J. B. Wells Arena, in conjunction with the cutting-horse competition. A portion of the proceeds will go to Norma’s House.
The Community Committee will meet on Wednesday.
