Dignity Memorial to hold an Open House and Welcome Home Celebration for Brett Edgerly and family


The Crooked River Roundup had a great rodeo week, with lots of activities for the entire family to enjoy. The largest turnout for any of the events throughout the week is probably the annual parade that was held this past Saturday. This year’s theme was “Saddle Up and Ride” and more than 80 entrants made their way down Third Street to the delight of the young and young at heart spectators. This year the parade coordinators gave out five awards, and the winners were: Best Use of Theme went to Box R Water; Most Enthusiastic went to Vet’s 2B 4H club; Best Queen/Court went to Miss Wasco County Rodeo Queen; Most Creative went to McKenzie View Acres; and Best Group Appearance went to Juniper Canyon Baptist Church.

Now that the excitement of the rodeo is behind the CCRU, they are busy getting everything in order for the start of the horse races, starting tomorrow with the gates opening all four nights at 6 p.m. and post time for the first race scheduled for 7 p.m. This year’s sponsors will be Robberson Ford of Prineville, on Wednesday, July 9, with “ladies night”; Evergreen Home Loans are sponsors on Thursday, July 10, and they have free passes at their office; Wilco Farm Stores will be the sponsors on Friday, July 11; and Les Schwab Tire Centers will sponsor the final night of this year’s horse races, on Saturday, July 11.

So, whether you like to wager a bet, catch up with friends you have not seen since last year’s races, or just want to enjoy a summer evening out, check out the races. Be safe and enjoy yourself.

It’s that time of year to start making plans to spend your Wednesday evenings at Pioneer Park for this year’s concert series, brought to you by Crook County Foundation and their sponsors. The weekly concerts will start on Wednesday, July 16. Weekly ads will start on Friday, July 11, with the following week’s music line-up.

Dignity Memorial is proud to welcome the return of a Prineville “boy,” Brett Edgerly and his family. I say “boy” because I have known him since he wrestled for Crook County High School some 25 years ago and it just seems like yesterday, but of course, it wasn’t. Prineville Funeral Home will be hosting an Open House and Welcome Home Celebration for Brett and his wife, Cheyenne, along with their five children, on Tuesday, July 15, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at 199 N.E. 10th St. For more information you can contact Tim Fenderson at 541-447-6459.

The Crook County Landfill will be holding a free household hazardous waste collection on Saturday, July 12, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information you can contact them at 541-447-2398.

Prineville Perk will be held at the Redemption House this Friday, July 11, from 8 to 8:30 a.m. They are located at 780 E. First St For more information on Prineville Perk, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 541-447-6304. The Chamber is looking for businesses to host the weekly gathering.
