CONGRATULATIONS to Spicer Gripp Roping

We want to wish a HUGE congratulations to all the folks who produce the Spicer Gripp Roping on their 20th Anniversary of the event. What started at a local areana twenty years ago has now grown into the most popular roping in the country. This year's event is even bigger and better and it just keeps growing. World Class Ropers, top notch facilities, and a dedicated group of volunteers make this an event that Hereford can be proud of. It brings a tremendous amount of folks from all over the area to our community and we want to thank everyone involved in the Spicer Gripp Roping for their performance of this event.

Soon To Be Announced

There is a concentrated effort to create a Leadership Program for Hereford. Our local Workforce Committee is working hard on this and are getting very close to establishing the first program of this kind in our community. Specifics of the program will be announced soon and you can learn how you will be able to provide your employees with the tools and skills they need to become leaders in the community. This will be a self-sustaining program and is tuition based. It will have its own Director and should be the kind of program that offers tremendous value to businesses and indivdual participants. We are looking forward to being able to make an announcement in the very near future. HEDC Executive Director Michael Kitten chairs the committee and is working hard to get us in position to launch this exciting program. We hope you will become as excited about this program as the committee and that you will find it very benefical to you and your employees
