Crosby Rodeo fetes, raffles and elects

At the September 14 Crosby Fair & Rodeo Membership Meeting voting members repeated Gene HIcks, Jr., Justin George, Michael Niemtschik, Ronny Erlich, Roger Boblick, Jr., Jared Prescott and Bradley Orn as board members. There are 21 board members elected on a three year cycle.

CROSBY – The Crosby Fair & Rodeo hosted themselves at the covered pavilion last Saturday and held a raffle draw for a John Deer Gator XUV590M, a Savage Bersa Thunder .380 pistol and a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle.

On Monday the membership turned out to vote back in the same guys to be one third of the board.

The raffle was done on Facebook without physical tickets being issued but each entry had their name placed on a poker chip, the poker ship placed in a drum and local newpaper guy, Lewis Spearman, draw out and announce the lucky winners.

London Harvey won the Gator, Romi Sandiel the .380 and John Swinney won the Creedmoor.

The event Saturday was mostly a community gathering with emphasis on family and rural values. The meal was fried fish and it was done just right, light and crispy.

This was a tough year for all charities and the raffle helped keep the wolf from the door.
