PLYMOUTH â€” The third annual P-Town Cruzâ€™n car show was a huge success Saturday, as 143 total cars were entered into the non-competitive event. And if the amount of pizza consumed is an indication of attendance, it was a successful draw as well.
Many attendees walked away with door prizes, including two 32-inch TVs. Car owners were automatically entered into a drawing to win one of the TVs, and spectators entered to win by visiting area businesses. The more businesses they visited, the more chances they had of winning.
GROVERTOWN â€” Just two weeks remain until Saylorâ€™s End of the Trail summer rodeo event June 23. For a $10 admission fee, attendees can spend the evening admiring tricks and stunts such as bronco riding, cattle working events, barrel racing, and bull riding.
â€śWe have two rodeos a year,â€ť explained co-owner Laura Saylor. â€śThis one is a rodeo with a twist, we call it. (Contestants) have to put a team together and there are six different events that they have to compete in. There has to be at least one girl on each team, and there can be no more than 10 teams.â€ť
