News Releases

Cocopah Museum staffers display the two trophies they won on the second day of the 75thAnnual Yuma Jaycees Rodeo. Rodeo Chairman Damian Moore presented the Best Overall float and the Chairman’s Choice trophies moments before the parade began.

With the rodeo marking a mile stone, 75 years, Cocopah Museum director Joe Rodriquez came up with the idea of creating a mining theme for the float with the slogan “Dirt to Diamonds.”
