Visitors give thanks

Couple from B.C. express their thoughts on visit to Stampede

Dear Editor:

My wife and I are life long residents of Vernon, B.C. and very avid rodeo fans.

We have, over the years, patronized rodeos in Innisfail, Red Deer, Omak (Washington), Cheyenne (Wyoming) and Pendleton (Oregon) to name a few.

Ponoka’s recent Stampede and Chucks was absolutely fabulous in every way.

Our thanks to everyone for making our 10 day visit so great.

Special thanks to the merchants, rodeo staff and volunteers.

Kudos to your fantastic (Royal Canadian) Legion for their many services and hospitality. Also, to the great RV’ing Legionairres from Winfield whom we had the pleasure of camping with.

We will be back for more of your fireworks and to enjoy your great community and its wonderful citizens.

Hopefully, our good city of Vernon in the Okanagan Valley will treat you as well when you hopefully visit us.

Thanks Ponoka,

G. Nuyens
