Mark your calendars and plan to attend the 76th Annual Nyssa Nite Rodeo to be held June 17-18 at the Oregon Trail Arena. 

There are several rodeo related activities planned, including a Buckaroo Breakfast, Rodeo Parade and the annual Rodeo Banquet. 

The banquet kicks things off on Tuesday, June 14, at the Nyssa High School Cafeteria. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a tri-tip dinner with all the fixings catered by Brian Wolfe. Cost is $20 and the banquet is open to all. The current Nyssa Nite Rodeo queen and her Lady in Waiting will be in attendance.

Meantime, the rodeo board announced Brandon Veda as the recipient of the Nyssa Nite Rodeo Scholarship. Seniors at Nyssa and Adrian high schools are eligible to apply for the $1,000 award. Brandon will attend Boise State University in the fall.

• The Nyssa Volunteer Fire Department will hold an open house from 12-3 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at the station, 203 Good Ave. There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, salads, chips and drinks served. Stop by, take a look at the station and fire equipment, and meet your volunteer firefighters.

• Burn days for the City of Nyssa will be June 10-20. Remember, burn days are for yard debris only. Mind your fire, don’t burn near fences or buildings and always have a water supply nearby.
