Command in the Community – OGYRC

The Kansas City Command continue to be involved in assisting local charities when the need arises.  Fox4 Problem Solvers recently ran a story when the Oak Grove Youth Rodeo Club (OGYRC) had 30 rodeo panels (gates) stolen off their property last month.  The gates are used to corral farm animals during fundraising rodeo events in Oak Grove.  The cost of replacing the panels would have hamstrung OGYRC’s ability to help kids grow up to be cowboys, (despite what their mamas have told them).

The OGYRC is a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to keep young people involved in an activity where drugs and alcohol are not allowed, and at the same time, give them guidance and instruction in the sport of rodeo, along with the opportunity to join together with other people who have similar interests.

The KC Command stepped in and purchased 33 new gates that were delivered just in time for the OGYRC’s annual ‘mutton-busting’ fundraising event on May 11th.  The OGYRC is a great KC organization – to find out more, please visit their site
