If you have been to the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, you will have noticed a multitude of folks wearing red Carbondale Wild West Rodeo shirts. These folks are the legion of volunteers it takes to have the rodeo run smoothly. The CWWR depends on these fine folks week after week. There are still opportunities to volunteer -- whether you have one Thursday evening to donate your time, 3 or 4 nights, or the whole 12 rodeos of the season -- we welcome you to join us.
