Show support for your community, attend the fair, rodeo

It’s easy to say you support your community.

It’s easy to be an armchair quarterback and critique how an event or organization operates or forecast its success or failure.

But if you don’t get involved, you truly can’t say you have supported your community. You certainly haven’t helped to ensure the longevity of any of its valuable events and activities.

You are also missing an opportunity to play your part in helping to ensure that our small rural communities continue to have good, wholesome family events for future generations.

Whether you ever think about it or not, a positive quality of life is too important to lose. It’s easier to be apathetic and allow events and organizations to simply fade away due to a lack of local support.

Anything worth having takes work. All too often we stand around and scratch our heads, wondering outloud why something that was a valuable part of our community fabric has ceased to exist.

All of us must work together to preserve what is important to the community as a whole.

Today the Wheat Land Communities’ Fair opens and on Friday the Ritzville Rodeo will kickoff.

These two events are giant undertakings and they are conducted by a handful of volunteers who believe in their mission. Both deserve everyone’s support.

Show your support by being there, purchase a ticket and attend. You’ll be glad you did!
