Home to the Motherlode!
Most of you know I am from the valley, but my roots actually started in the foothills! I graduated 8th grade from a Jamestown elementary school and was always an attendee of the Motherlode Roundup and Parade! This rodeo was truly like going home for me, I had only dreamed about being a part of their famous parade, let alone being included in there rodeo and program! The posse was fantastic and I met so many amazing individuals that I am proud to now call friends!!! I was able to a part of their traditional Calcutta auction where they sell teams for the calf scramble to the highest bidder. I met some beautiful and crazy talented young women who were competing for the title of Miss MotherLode Round Up Queen and became friends with most everyone on the posse. The welcome and appreciation I received was so overwhelming!! Thank you Motherlode for allowing a dream to come true!!
