Crawfordsville news: Tri-T girls come back from camp

The regular meeting of Chapter L of the National T.T.T. Society was held Monday, June 25, at the Olds United Church of Christ. President Barb Shelman called the meeting to order and the meeting opened with the group singing, ?The Sword of Gold.?

Crawfordsville resident, Miss Junior Rodeo Iowa, Zoey Dennler, daughter of Darren and Karen Dennler, made several appearances last month. In early June, she participated in the parade at Keota Fun Days. Two weeks later, Zoey traveled to Edgewood where she met up with Miss Rodeo Iowa, Jenna Kool, and Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa, Kaylee Tremel, for the PRCA Rodeo event. Edgewood welcomed these ladies and took them on tours of businesses like the local day care, care center and assisted living facility.

The trio met the man that started the rodeo 30 years prior. They enjoyed spending time with the local children at a variety of games and events. They rode on the Edgewood firetruck during the parade. The Rodeo Queens were on hand at the PRCA rodeo all three nights.

Next Zoey assisted the Jefferson County Fair Board by helping out at the 4-H show at the Jefferson County Fair in Fairfield.

Zoey enjoyed participating in the Fourth of July parade in Wayland, and also her hometown parade at the Crawfordsville Fun Days. She will be looking forward to more events during July.
