My year as the 2012 Fort Dalles Rodeo Queen seems to have flown by leaving me shocked it’s already drawing to an end. Looking threw photos of this year amazes me at how much I have progressed as a young woman. I am still finding it hard to believe that in 5 days it will be 2013, leaving me with very fond memories and and some slightly sensitive lungs from all the hairspray. Serving as the 2012 Fort Dalles Rodeo Queen has made me grow as a person and really appreciate the giving and supportive community I live in here in The Dalles, Oregon. As we end a year there seems to be a million thank you’s to be said to each and every person who made this year possible. I believe the biggest thank you goes to all of the sponsors of the Fort Dalles Rodeo. Without the sponsors there would be no rodeo for me to proudly represent and promote year round. So thank you to each and every one of our sponsors for all of their much appreciated support this year! Also I would like to thank my family, friends, rodeo board, sponsors, and community. 2012 wouldn’t have been the year that it was without all of you. Thank you for letting me be an ambassador for not only rodeo but also the Fort Dalles Rodeo Association and the city of The Dalles.
