35th Annual Isanti Rodeo a success

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the entire Isanti Fire Department Rodeo Association, I thank each of you who attended and helped make the 35th Annual Professional Rodeo an absolutely incredible fund-raising event for the Fire Department this year. The weather could not have been any nicer for watching the sport of rodeo. The bands of Killer Hayseeds and Iron Horse provided great music for the dances.

I would like to thank all my fellow firefighters who go out of their way every year to make this event run as smoothly as possible. Thanks to the security staff and the emergency service personnel who put in the long hours to keep this summer celebration safe and orderly.

A special thanks to all the individuals and businesses who gave talent, equipment, and support so willingly. We appreciate the partnership. The enthusiasm and community spirit generated is overwhelming.

And again, thank you to our rodeo friends and fans for having made 35 years of fund-raising a very successful community event. You are the ones who make this possible.

Watch for some additional positive changes to the 36th Annual Firefighters Rodeo July 6-7, 2012. Mark your calendars!

Tom Pagel, Chair
Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Association
