NYSSA NEWS: Parade makes great tribute to 2020 class

Hurrah for Nyssa, especially your support of the Class of 2020! It was great to see so many cars lining Main Street and to hear the cheers and horns honking as the Class of 2020 parade went through town.

Supporting each other, whether a graduate, neighbor or local business is what makes Nyssa such a great place to live.

• “A” is for asparagus. Yes, it’s that time of year when we get to enjoy delicious asparagus picked in local fields. Every Friday afternoon, you can get your fix filled by purchasing freshly-picked asparagus at the stand at the stop light.

• The Nyssa Nite Rodeo Board has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s rodeo due to the COVID-19 threat and Governor Brown’s restrictions on large gatherings. For 75 years, the Nyssa community, including businesses, sponsors, an army of volunteers, fans, contestants and stock contractors have come together in support of the rodeo.

For anyone who has been involved in an event of this magnitude, you know how much work – months and months of work – go in to hosting a community event. A huge thank you to the Rodeo Board for all your work on the rodeo.

Check out their Facebook page and website, nyssaniterodeo.com, for information regarding the 2021 queen as well as the Nyssa or Adrian student who will be the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from the rodeo board.
