On the weekend of Feb. 12 and 13, the Korkow Rodeo hosted their Fourth Annual Broncs and Bulls competition. Layton Zoss and Tanner Christian both competed in the Ride ‘Em Rank mini bull competition on Saturday night. Zoss won his age division and the event. He was awarded a belt buckle and a $285 cash prize for his championship win.

Mason Moody competed both Friday and Saturday nights. He made the short go on Friday night, but didn’t complete anything on Saturday night. Lawson Zoss competed in his first bull riding competition during the event. According to his mother, he didn’t make the whistle, but he sure had fun. 

The Zoss boys are sons of Charlie and Christy Zoss of rural Forestburg. Christian is the son of Kristi Weber and Stuart Christian of Woonsocket, and Moody is the son of Perry and Tracy Moody of rural Letcher.

Modern Woodmen of America members in the Woonsocket area recently helped raise money for the Sanborn County Ambulance with a special fundraising event in January. Many know first-hand the importance and value of the Volunteer Sanborn County Ambulance team. In December, the Woonsocket Chapter of the Modern Woodmen of America became aware of the need for a washer and dryer for the Ambulance volunteers. In the past, any linens or blankets that the ambulance used were washed at Prairie View Healthcare Center. Because of COVID, this was no longer an option and the volunteers were washing them at home.  The Sanborn County Ambulance team had decided to pursue a project to purchase and install a washer and dryer at the Ambulance shed in Woonsocket so that all laundering could be completed there.
