Sagebrush Days was a fun-in-the-sun event. Parade judges were Maria Payeur, Remie Campomenosi and Ruth Elvin.
First place was awarded to the Native Daughters of the Golden West for its oak tree float; second to Marty and son Chaz with their miniature, pedal-powered covered wagon; third to In Cahoots Drill Team, who put their horses through well-rehearsed paces.
Trophies were made by Rick Decatur. A shout-out to the Grizzly Youth Academy who helped us on short notice!
