Fairgrounders Rally for Positive Vibes on Social Media

Fairgrounders set out last Friday evening to bring hope to Denton and this nation. They were tired all of the sickness and violence happening in the world and wanted to do something positive. Fairgrounders are members of the North Texas Fair & Rodeo volunteer team. They perform the opening ceremonies each night of the rodeo in August, carrying the American and Texas flags.   

Teri Hasten said, "I texted the Fairgrounders on Thursday and without hesitation they rallied.  We had shirts made, collected the flags, and even borrowed a horse for one of our girls-everyone pulled together. I wasn’t sure what reaction we would get and the response was and still is overwhelming! People were smiling, honking, literally hanging out the windows waving, standing up through sunroofs, giving thumbs up and fist pumping, even blowing kisses! People were pulling over to take pictures-One girl made a video as they were driving under and last time I checked it has over 133 THOUSAND views! We made the change I wanted to see in my FB news feed even if for a short time."
