Vote opens Crosby Fair & Rodeo for new season

CROSBY – Monday the membership of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo elected seven board members and those board members voted to keep the same officers as last year.

The celebration of a fantastically successful season will be held this coming Saturday, Sept. 14 at 5:00 p.m. A season that would send $35,000 to the San Jacinto Methodist Hospital Cancer Center Endowment Fund and $5000 to the American Cancer Society in addition to numerous scholarships and a premium livestock auction paying generously to the youth that raised them. The event called Membership Shrimp Fry is simply a chance to catch up on anecdotes and tales from the previous seasons.

Seven positions came up for election this year. Sonny Armstrong, Les Gof, Rick Loggins, Shawn Hays, Billy Nash, Ben Jones and Coy Hearn won the membership election to the board.

The officers stayed the same as last year’s successful team. Rick Loggins stays Chairman of the Board. Sonny Armstrong was reelected to the President. Rick Larkin is First Vice President. Second Vice President is Ronny Ehrlich. Eddie Glover is Secretary. Bill Busby is Treasurer. General Manager is Justin George. Kris Dalquist stays Office Manager.

The Fairgrounds will be the location of the Czech Fest on Oct. 6. The Bras for the Cause cancer fundraiser is to be February 8 at the David H. McNerney American Legion Post 658.

Although these functions are important to the community the positive notoriety and Greater Houston wide recognition of our area that comes yearly with the Rodeo is ultimately beneficial.
