"Ride with the Ranchers"

Supporting youth through college scholarships.


The Elbert/Douglas County Livestock Association "Ride with the Ranchers"  trail ride held Saturday, September 10, 2016 at the Keven and Sandi Turecek ranch was a great success. Twenty-four riders took advantage of this once-in-lifetime opportunity. Following the ride an outstanding rib eye steak lunch cooked on-site was served along with corn on the cob, potato salad, home made coleslaw, watermelon, cookies, iced tea and lemon aid.  The biggest complaint voiced was the dinner plates were too small to hold all of the food.  EDCLA would like to thank Dave Link with MultiMin and Mathew Cox with Merial for sponsoring our event.  Their contribution added greatly to the financial success of this fund raiser.  With their support, contributions from EDCLA members and the riders we were able to raise enough money to provide one scholarship next year to either a Douglas County or Elbert County graduating high school senior who will pursue an agricultural related college degree.    

The Elbert/Douglas County Livestock Association welcomes you.

* Nearly 50% of your registration fee goes toward three college scholarships for graduating high school seniors from high schools located in either Elbert County or Douglas County who will be pursuing agricultural related college degrees.
