The Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo and their Ram Rodeo partner, Brickner Park City and the Brickner Family have always held the Armed Services in high regards for all of the sacrifices they have made to keep this country free and strong. So when the decision was made to honor the armed services with the Friday night rodeo performance “Military Appreciation Night”, it was a simple decision to honor our veterans by donating to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. Bryan Bloch said “We hope this is just the beginning of a tradition at the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo, and would like to see it continue in the future”. “It was an honor to be able to sponsor the Military Appreciation Night at the Rodeo and send 5 Lincoln County Veterans to Washington D.C. to see their Memorials” said Jim Brickner. “We all agree that next year is a go so put us on your calendar June 9th, 2017”. 2016 was our 3rd year of donating to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
