The 4th of July represented a culmination of the pride the local citizens have in their own home towns and country. Children and adults of all ages and shapes were on hand across the county to enjoy Independence Day with their friends and families.
Last weekend, for the first time in almost 15 years, the Colorado Junior Rodeo Association (CRJA) returned to Eads where they held a youth competition at the Kiowa County Fairgrounds. Judging from the number of pickup trucks and horse trailers in the fairgrounds parking lot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the event was extremely well attended.
Most people who are kind and supportive do so because they are just good people. There is a large number of those types living quietly and non-assuming on the plains of southeastern Colorado. They never expect anything back for their good deeds because in their world kindness and respect for others, no matter who they might be, go hand in hand. Such was the way Dolores Eikenberg lived her life in Haswell for a very long time until she recently passed away leaving a void in the lives of all who knew her.
In the fall of 2018, a group of women united to form a civic group with the quest to support the idea of community in Eads and throughout Kiowa County. With that in mind, Women Empowered (WE) strives to serve our community with the objective of empowerment of others in reaching their goals through our encouragement, support, positivity, strength, and love. In a nutshell, the group hopes to support other community groups in addition to organizing our own events that will likewise help us support our community.
