Jaycees Book tells Rodeo's 60-year story

Friday, June 14, 2013


SIKESTON -- This isn't their first rodeo, but it may be the Sikeston Jaycees' first rodeo book.

"The Story of the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo: 60th Anniversary Edition" will be 192 pages of history captured on 8.5-by-11-inch high-quality glossy enameled paper bound into a hardcover coffee table book.

"To my knowledge, we've never done one of these before -- not to this extent, at least," said Nathan Cox, vice president of the Jaycee's rodeo board. "There's hundreds of great photos and some great stories, too."
