Go Western, Grangeville!

Hear ye, hear ye! The time has come for people of Grangeville, Camas Prairie and all others willing to take part in the wild west spirit to don western attire in observance of Grangeville Border Days celebration, July 4, 5 and 6

Whereas, Grangeville Border Days is the oldest rodeo in continuous operation in Idaho and the second oldest in the Pacific Northwest, it has developed into the fastest, wildest and most enjoyable celebration for the observance of Independence Day.

Whereas, some men cannot resist the urge to let their faces go to bush, all wives are asked to consider the good cause for the next few weeks as they bring fame and fun to the wildest, wooliest Fourth of July celebration in the Northwest.

I do hereby declare western attire — at least three items — to be worn throughout these days, while at the same time keeping our record of being a “friendly city” intact.

Proclaimed by request of Tanner Fogleman, Grangeville Border Days, Inc., president, in the interest of a real “Cut ’Em Loose” Border Days in 2013.

Wes Lester, Cowboy Mayor

City of Grangeville, Idaho

Attest: Tonya Kennedy, City Clerk
