EVANSTON — The Evanston Rodeo Series for 2017 has come to an end. It was a series filled with great competition and outstanding stock provided by both Circle J Rodeo and Diamond H.
This series was also a time to thank all those who have worked for 25 years initially to kick off the series, and then keep it going for 25 years. It takes a lot of people to put on a rodeo from the announcers, such as the Kelly family, and the cowboys and cowgirls to thes sponsors and a large staff of people who keep the events running smoothly.
