Allan Hancock College Rodeo Team
This morning our club was honored to have members of the AHC Rodeo Team come and speak about their new program. Jim Glines gave our club background information on the inception of the program and how they have assembled some excellent competitors to represent our local college. In fact, Rotary member Michael Moat's granddaughter is an active participant in the rodeo competition. This past year, the team has had the pleasure of attending nine different rodeos to compete in.
Since no college financing is available, the program depends solely on contributions from the community. Charter membership's are available for $1,000 and a fundraiser Dinner/Auction has been scheduled for August 7th. A table of 10 has been purchased by our club for this event. Contact President Thomas if you would like to attend.
