Big Sky Circuit Comes to Owatonna

We had amazing community support in hosting the Big Sky Circuit NCHA Days this past weekend. The events kicked off with a cutting horse demonstration & Meet and Greet Thursday night for Chamber Members and NCHA competitors. Chamber members had the opportunity to learn more about the cutting horse competitions and spend some time getting to know the competitors. Thanks to all of you who attended!
NCHA & its members also very generously helped raise $2650 to benefit Community Pathways, our local food shelf & clothesline. Our community is so grateful for this generous gift!  (Check out some of the action)
