The newly formed Junior Main Street group is working on the downtown rodeo roundup for July 7 and reports that all systems are “go.”

Helen Corley of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, along with Johnnie Mae Grimm of Opal’s House of Bargains, will once again be in charge of the turtle race competition.

There seems to be a bumper crop of turtles this year and perhaps a record setting winner has already been caught and corralled by some enterprising youngster.

The perennial ‘Cute Cowkids Contest’ is on tap again as well as a bean bag toss, a “saloon” serving root beer floats, a finger painting station and a special visit by the rodeo queen contestants who will judge the “Cute Cowkids Contest.

” Children’s events will be held in the 100 block of W. Broadway in front of the Downtown Cushing Main Street office.

The activities will run from shortly after 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will begin immediately following the annual Cushing Public Library Summer Reading Parade which begins at Hughes Lumber and proceeds east to the Cushing Public Library).

The Downtown Roundup is aimed primarily at children.

A Centennial Quilt Show is also a part of the event this year.

The event is held to pay tribute to the city’s western past.

It coincides with the annual Cushing PRCA Rodeo.
