Rodeo Parade Revived

It has been many years since the last Rodeo Parade. In its day was one of the most celebrated events in Merritt. With the help of three key volunteers the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce is working at bringing it back. Rodeo committee volunteers, Virginia Aspinall, Jim Beckett and Brandi O'Flynn are committed to putting life back into this event. To date - the route has been mapped and approved, additional volunteers recruited and registration forms are out waiting for submissions. This year's parade may not be up to the same scale as the past but at least it is a start, says Chamber manager, Etelka Gillespie. Our Rodeo committee is very enthusiastic and ready to take on whatever comes their way, that is exciting, says Gillespie.
