 Saturday afternoon, the 3rd Annual Dogwood Classic Bible Ropin’ at Davis Ranch Arena was a huge success. Sit’em Down thanks all who came to participate and the great volunteers. The Bent Bucket Band from Athens, Texas provided wonderful music and Jason Norton, King’s Trail Cowboy Church in Whitewright, Texas blessed the crowd with an inspired message. Mike and Stephanie Hill’s Longhorn Smokehouse once again provided a great meal. Mark your calendars for next year’s Classic – April 28, 2018.
