Local resident reflects on the Ponoka Stampede

Dear Editor;
The Stampede is over for another year. The noise and the dust have settled, it’s quiet. I think it was a good year for the rodeo. It sure brings out the people and that’s good.
Thank you to those who fed us pancakes, entertained us and give us pleasure, it was a good year.

Dear Editor;

The Stampede is over for another year. The noise and the dust have settled, it’s quiet. I think it was a good year for the rodeo. It sure brings out the people and that’s good.

Thank you to those who fed us pancakes, entertained us and give us pleasure, it was a good year.

We went for a walk in the campgrounds. Looking up, we saw the funniest sight. The big trees all had their tops cut off. Looks like a helicopter with huge blades flew over and whacked them off or some space monsters?

Ok, so I guess this was done so the tops wouldn’t blow over in the bad winds we’ve had and on the campers. To my lame brain it looked strange.

Hope all your crops are good. Your kids are happy. Enjoy the summer it goes so fast.

Good to see the same crew at our Ponoka News. We are getting our paper every week. So good to have a delivery person who gets our paper here. He has good back up, just what our young ones need.

Nettie Tatlow,

Ponoka
