Rip-roaring sendoff planned for area's own rodeo queen

Sunday, November 18, 2001

For northwest Iowa's favorite rodeo queen, it's back in the pageant saddle again.

Kelly Heschke, the 21-year-old Miss Rodeo Iowa from Aurelia, will be competing in the Miss Rodeo America pageant at Las Vegas December 2-10. The event is part of the National Finals Rodeo celebration.

Heschke, the daughter of Duane and Jo Heschke of Aurelia, is a student in the elementary education program at Iowa State University, and a rodeo veteran in her own right.

A sendoff coffee will be held at the Aurelia Community Center November 24, 2-4 p.m. Kelly will share the speech that will be part of her Las Vegas performance, and everyone is welcome.
