Enjoy the Rodeo and Pass the Boot!
Each night during the Rodeo a Boot was passed to collect donations for three worthy causes.
On Friday night the Boots were passed to assist in the recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey. The Audience was generous to donate $1100 to assist Farmers and Ranchers in the Houston area.
On Saturday night when the Boots were passed the Audience donated $1400 to help Injured Cowboys.
On Sunday night the Boots raised $850 for Cancer Charity.
And That’s No Bull…

A Chance To Win Vs. Helping a Little Pig…
This fair, like so many before it, was filled with heartwarming stories.
One of those instances is highlighted in this article from the Everett Herald by Kari Bray on Friday September 1st, 2017. A small Piglet, unable to get enough to eat in the hustle and bustle of the litter, was in need of some mighty fine Goats milk.
When faced with a choice between helping or winning these young farmers were willing to put a life ahead of a ribbon. Showing once again how much of a family, the showman are, at the Evergreen State Fair.
Eat a little too much, or enjoy a bit too much Jones Soda…
