Along with NSUJL’s usual product tent, their 7th Annual Rodeo also included many other vendors and family-friendly activities as well. As in previous years, various IBEW locals and industry companies who sponsored the event set tents up around the event grounds. Food vendors were also present. New for this year was the local Craft & Vendor section, in which small businesses in the Clearfield, PA community came out & sold their products. Kid’s activities for this year included a bouce house, craft area and duck pond game.
NSUJL also holds a Silent Auction at every Rodeo. Some notable items appearing at this year’s event included a handmade t-shirt quilt, made with various IBEW Local tees, and hand-carved cornhole boards, painted with an American flag behind the silouette of a lineman. NSUJL also auctioned off a beautiful lineman wood carving that was created on-site. Baskets that were auctioned off included various Buckingham gear, Klein items, a DeWalt Tool Set, and more!
