20th Anniversary Edition

Just around the corner is the upcoming Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping which will kick off their 20th Anniversary Edition beginning on Wednesday, July 30th with the Kick Off Reception and Dinner. A full five days of activity is scheduled with numerous events on each day. The members and volunteers of the Spicer Gripp Memorial are continuing a legacy that started in 1994. Just to keep an event going for 20 years is a milestone in itself. They not only keep it going, they keep it growing. Making it's mark as one of the top spots for ropers and fans alike, Spicer Gripp Memorial has provided a wonderful opportunity for children through scholarships, donations, and improvements made at WTAMU. Their mission is "Inspiring area youth through scholarships, encouraging agriculture and academic excellence as well as supporting cultural and industrial events within the Spicer Gripp Youth Foundation Area. The Chamber salutes the Spicer Gripp Foundation committee and all the hard working  volunteers who produce such a fine quality event for Hereford. To get a schedule or find out information about the event you may call 806-773-8231. Be sure and make plans to attend the finest roping event anywhere and see how you can participate.
