June 26th, 2021 is Keep Nebraska Beautiful Day! In honor of that event, Keep Chadron Beautiful is issuing a challenge to the members of our community: this upcoming Saturday, make an effort to pick up one piece of litter. The current population in Chadron is 5,591, so if each person in our area picks up one piece of litter then we will make a huge difference in beautifying and caring for our community! By taking on small community projects individually, we will make a big impact collectively.
Enjoy ‘Cowboy Culture’ with night of music, poetry in Harrison
Old-fashioned story-telling, through cowboy poetry and music will conjure up images of sitting around the campfire or working the ranch during the first-ever Cowboy Culture Night, scheduled for June 26 in Harrison.
The event, spearheaded by Harrison residents Tami Hughson, Katie Reece and Annette Oldaker, will shine the spotlight on traditional cowboy poetry and music by Robert Dennis, Yvonne Hollenbbeck and the Ramblin’ Rangers.
Dennis, a rancher near Red Owl, S.D., has been a regular contributor to Cowboy Magazine and has published three books of poetry and short stories, as well as a CD of cowboy music. His poetry and singing have taken him to events across the region, but when he’s at home on the family cattle ranch, Dennis will likely be in the saddle or building one.
Hollenbeck lives on an Angus and Quarter Horse ranch near Clearfield and uses her experiences as a ranch wife to inspire her poetry, stories and weekly articles in the Farmer-Rancher Exchange. She is also an avid quilt maker and quilt historian, often presenting programs about her collection of family quilts, which span 150 years.
The Ramblin’ Rangers – Brad and Bonnie Jo Exton – worked as rangers in forests, parks and monuments throughout the West, and their music is influenced by their experiences as they honor the western way of life.
In addition to the featured entertainment, organizer Tami Hughson says several local artists will serve as opening acts for the evening, which also includes a meal starting at 5:30 p.m. Free-will donations will be accepted, with proceeds to the Harrison Community Club to benefit the annual events the club sponsors.
