On Jan. 21 and 22, Delta County junior princess Tess Gore and princess Arla Nelson went to the National Western Stock Show in Denver to volunteer their time and represent Delta County.
One of their activities was a tour of the KUSA Channel 9 News building. Arla was able to make the tour, but Tess and her family got held up in traffic and missed it.
Arla was able to see how a newscast is made ready for live broadcast from the control room to the anchor room. She found the tour very informative.
The next day Arla and Tess went to the National Western Stock Show complex and met with the royalty coordinator. The girls were assigned to help with the Pony Trails. This is an area set up to entertain younger children. That afternoon Arla and Tess greeted the stock show crowds and helped direct the Gold Buckle seating during the PRCA rodeo.
Arla and Tess said they had a blast volunteering and representing Delta County at the National Western Stock Show.blog comments powered by Disqus
