    Be sure to mark your calendar and not miss the 2019 Valley Center Stampede Rodeo and Memorial Festival on Memorial Day weekend, May 24-25. The Valley Center Stampede Rodeo is the town’s first-ever professional rodeo, sanctioned in 2017 by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA). In 2015, organizers created the Memorial Festival to pay tribute to the nation’s veterans, and rodeo proceeds are donated to local youth organizations and to organizations that promote the morale of our local military. Nestled in the inland valleys of North San Diego County, Valley Center exemplifies many aspects of America’s traditional western and agricultural lifestyles. Valley Center Stampede Rodeo, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization that truly appreciates its dedicated volunteers, and new new volunteers from high school age and older are welcome each year. The Valley Center Stampede Rodeo and Memorial Festival will be held at Star Valley Park, located at 29902 Valley Center Road. For more information, visit www.VCStampede.com and see the ad on page 7.
