May 14th, 2017:
My time here in Sonora is flying by! Starting on Thursday, I attended the annual Calcutta where we raised over 9,000 dollars for the youth of Sonora. First thing Friday morning I was in studio with KKBN 93.5 talking about my year so far and what it’s like being miss rodeo California, anything from how I got my start to what I eat while on the road. Saturday kicked off with the annual parade, which was at one point the second largest in California next to the rose parade! That afternoon we closed off the day with the first performance of the 60th annual Motherlode Roundup. I’m feeling so grateful to the community of Sonora for welcoming me in!
