Ranches, horses and the rodeo helped shape the American west and Grand County played a role in the rich western history. Did you know Grand Lake held a very popular rodeo competition in the early years? Wranglers would come for miles around to compete for the $70 prize purse.
The annual Grand County Historical Association dinner is this Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Inn at SilverCreek and the theme is ranches and rodeos, a 100-year celebration. A dinner will include a presentation, interesting speakers, memorabilia, artifacts and photos from the early years, plus a panel of rodeo and ranch professionals to share their Grand County stories.
Cocktails are at 6 p.m. and the dinner is at 7 p.m. Call Kristi at Cozens Ranch for reservations. 970-726-5488.
