Hayden Sanders, Lilly Richardson Reign at Defiance Days

Hayden Sanders and Lillian Richardson reigned at Old Defiance Days last weekend. Hayden is the daughter of P.J. & Jessica Sanders of Parnell and Lillian is the daughter of Marcy Richardson of Olathe, KS. Friday’s activities were rounded up with a poker run and a karaoke show at Snakebite.
A rainstorm delayed the parade and other festivities for an hour, but the parade got underway at around 11 that morning following a biscuits & gravy breakfast put on by the Sheridan 4-H. It was followed by the Mic-O-Say Tribe’s performance and the 50 State Tribute to America. They rode around the Sheridan Park Square twice.
Ed Jacobs and friends entertained in the afternoon as there were many different events to choose from. An antique tractor pull was held on the 2nd & Lincoln Block northeast of the park while there were ATV races. Sheridan Grocery offered their pizza special. During the evening, people could choose between live music at the tavern and bluegrass music sponsored by the Sheridan Christian Church.
There were many different vendors. The Burns family came from Parnell with their chuckwagon and sold BBQ while there was an ice cream stand at the northwest corner of the park along with Jim Harrell’s yard sale. John and Lisa Hargrave came and sold their honey. Volleyball was held in the park with teams battling it out until the evening. An exotic bird show was held, with exotic birds of all different colors, some quite rare; there was also a huge owl as well. Sheridan Christian Church and the Sheridan United Methodist Church both sold baked goods. Lunch was provided by the Worth County Cub Scouts.
Festivities were concluded Sunday with a church service in the Sheridan Park sponsored by the Sheridan Christian Church along with a ranch rodeo at the new rodeo grounds in the afternoon. The new rodeo grounds got their first workout with the 180 races and the Ranch Rodeo.
