History of the Longview - Greggton Rotary Rodeo, Inc.
The rodeo began as a cooperative effort between a local radio station, KYKX 105.7 and Andrews Rodeo Company. In 1997 the radio station was sold to a new investment group and could no longer produce the rodeo. Sammy Andrews approached the Greggton Rotary Club to take over the production of the rodeo.  

The Greggton Rotary Club has more than 100 members. The Rodeo is the largest fund raiser during the year. More than 14 organizations apply to Rotary for donations. Over $40,000 is donated each year to those qualifying organizations. In total, The Rotary Club has donated more than $800,000 since they took over the production of the rodeo.

be the Stock Contractor of choice for the rodeo and helps the
Rotary Club produce one of the best PRCA Rodeos in the
East Texas area. Andrews Rodeo Company won the Stock
Contractor of the Year award  from the PRCA in 2002 and
has been nominated for the award several more times since.
He is also a 2008 Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame inductee.
