2009 Texas Ranch Roundup

Susan Knowles-Martin, a student & friend we met at
The University of Florida while Tripp
played baseball there has lived in Wichita Falls, TX
the past several years.

Susan was a sportscaster for
NBC in Wichita Falls and after having children
she decided her TV schedule wasn't 'kid' friendly
so she now works for
The North Texas Rehabilitation Center.

She called several weeks ago to tell me about
The Texas Ranch Roundup and wanted to know
if I could engrave their prizes this year.

After shipping the prizes to her, I asked for more
information about the "Roundup" and below is
her synopsis about this great event...The Texas Ranch Roundup is the original ranch rodeo
held in Wichita Falls, Texas each August.
This year marks the 29th year the event will be held.
It features 10 historic Texas ranches competing for
bragging rights in arena events,
chuck wagon cooking and festival events.
All proceeds from the event benefit the
North Texas Rehab Center
in Wichita Falls,
the West Texas Rehab Center in Abilene
and the West Texas Boys Ranch in San Angelo.
All provide quality physical, occupational and
speech therapy to children and adults
regardless of their ability to pay.

Sounds like a great organization to work for
and the roundup sounds like a fun outing/competition
for ranchers, their families and their workers.

Best of luck to The Rehab Center,
as we hope the event is
better than ever this year!

Blessings today and always,
Matthew 21:22
