We want to acknowledge writer JR Sanders’ NDOC event, “Read em Cowboy,” which he held at Barnes & Nobel in California. J.R. and B&N felt it was extremely successful and may expand to more B&N locations next year. Thanks too to Texas Fred (the Zydeco Cowboy), who created an NDOC exhibit for the lobby of the U.S. Dept of the Interior in Washington, DC, to NDOC Spokesperson Tom Bass, who put together an NDOC event with the Osceola County Historical Society in Florida, John Davison who for the second year in a row hosted Land Stewardship Workshops in Flagstaff, Arizona, Kim Raabe who held her first event in Washington, and the American Quarter Horse Museum in Texas who also held their first celebration this year. There were many more National Day of the Cowboy events, too numerous to mention, but we thank you all for getting involved. Every event is a testimony to the growing interest in establishing this as a permanent holiday.
