Hamel Rodeo gallops into Corcoran


Organizers of this year’s Hamel Rodeo said the four-day competition, July 10-13, would go on rain or shine. And they meant it. Professional cowboys and cowgirls competed in both sun and rain, with clouds dumping rain on Family Day events on Saturday. Volunteers from Hamel community groups put on the rodeo each year at Corcoran Lions Park to raise money for service projects, local sports and the Hamel Volunteer Fire Department.
