Ponoka Legion Cowboy Poetry and Music Event - June 21st (5th annual)
Reviewed by Bob & Charlotte Holt

On June 21st and June the 22nd, an enthusiastic group of country music fans gathered for the annual Cowboy festival. This event was as usual, well organized by the hard work of so many. We are all very grateful for their hard work and caring on this tradition, that so many of us enjoy.

Master of ceremonies for day was Ron Rusk and Fred Heibert was in charge of sound. entertainers were Hazel Rusk, Hugh Kelly , Jesse Colt, Ol Ugly, Rod Erickson, Phyllis Rathwell, Emma Lee Rusk, Larry Miller, Al Owcher, Martin Wolf, Barb Wire Band, and Vic Stucky.

Sunday morning opened with a delicious breakfast, followed by the cowboy church service by Reverend Marvin Rusk. Following the service everyone headed for home anxious to come back again next year.

Congratulations to all that worked for weeks, days and hours making this weekend one of the most successful events in Alberta entertainment.
