Member at Large: Rick Ledoux
Rick joined GGRA in 2005. He stepped right in as a volunteer and was amazing. Rodeo came and Rick was a whirl of activity. He worked most of the weekend at the water station for contestants. He carried cases of water and ice throughout the first day of rodeo and when we ran out of our donated water, Rick was at the store making sure we had enough water. My guess is he personally donated at least 20 cases of water. Rick served the board in 2006 as member at Large and was at every event we sponsored. We have also discovered that Rick is quite the Cajun cook!
