First Public Safety Rodeo Brings In Over $7200 To Paulding Public Safety Appreciation Inc
Seth Bice, of Frontier Classic Rodeo Company, producer of the first sanctioned SPRA, IPRA Paulding County Safety Rodeo gathered with sponsors and members of Paulding Public Safety Appreciation to present a $7200 contribution check to benefit safety workers in Paulding County. Paulding Public Safety Appreciation Inc. is a 501c3 organization whose goal is to help members of the public safety and their families during a time of need. All Paulding residents who are employed in Public Safety (Fire department, EMT, Sheriff's Office, and Police) are eligible.
During the check presentation at Hardy Family Ford (the major sponsor) Mr. Bice stated, "I want to thank my wife Katie and my children for their support and understanding thru this process of producing the rodeo. I also want to thank all of the sponsors. It would not have been possible without all of them." Mr. Bice also specifically thanked Hardy Family Automotive, Brian Stover, and BLD Rolloff, Rogers Mechanical Contractors, Inc., Ragsdale HVAC, C&L Contractors, Womack Truck Body, Inc., Henderson Collision, Wildhorse Tack & Feed, Lost Mountain Outdoor Power Equipment, and Barnes Store of Mableton.
Mr. Bice is a full-time firefighter with Cobb County Fire & EMS and lifelong resident of Paulding County. Having witnessed a successful and similar rodeo event in Cobb County, Mr. Bice set about to bring one home for the Paulding community. Paulding Meadows saw between 4000-4500 people during the two-day rodeo event.
Additionally, Mr. Bice specifically thanked Hardy Family Automotive, Brian Stover of BLD Rolloff, Ragsdale Heating, Air, Plumbing, and Electric, and especially the Paulding County Parks and Recreation department. All of the sponsors who participated in this year's Rodeo have provided tremendous support to our Public Safety professionals.
