Jaycees gearing up for the rodeo

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Employees with Asa Asphalt prepare the rodeo grounds near the sponsors building for asphalt to be poured. This will create a parking lot for rodeo sponsors, as well as a place for the tent, and is just one of several projects underway in preparation for the 59th annual Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo.
