Rodeo a community event

The June 17 edition of The Union carried a “thank you ad” on page A9. In it, the Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association printed the names of 132 businesses and 186 individuals who contributed time or money to the production of the 2014 Penn Valley Rodeo. I am always in awe of the support given by so many in western Nevada County. It was a huge success, as it has been the last several years! In addition to funding two college scholarships, the rodeo generates significant revenue for The Penn Valley Chamber, Ready Springs School, Penn Valley Little League, Kare Crisis Nursery, 4-H and Mount St. Mary’s Academy. The rodeo provides an evening of fun with thrills and spills for family entertainment at a very low cost. We deeply appreciate those who attended and those who supported the event!
