My name is Amanda Garland and I am excited to have the privilege of representing Hesperia this year as their 2008 Hesperia Recreation and Park District Rodeo Queen! I am looking forward to an amazing year of traveling to rodeos with my new Jr. Queen, Carrissa Miller. I feel honored to be able to work with the terrific people on the Rodeo Committee and H.R.P.D. I cannot wait to spend time getting to know each and every one of them. This year I plan to stay involved in the community and project a positive image of it everywhere I go. I have always enjoyed attending Hesperia's trail rides and fundraisers, but this will be the first time that I will be able to host them.

I am preparing for my busy year of not only representing Hesperia but also staying on the honor roll as a Junior in high school. I hope to expand my service project Operation Recuperation. I am collecting new and used factory CDs and DVDs and sending them to wounded soldiers recuperating in military hospitals. If you would like more information on Operation Recuperation please call 245-4262 ext.246. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
