WOW! Moments: The Stock Show and Rodeo
Cothelle has always been known to steal a show with her big smile, gracious attitude, and quick wit. She is a resident in our assisted living at Courtyards at River Park and we love her more and more each day. When we learned that Cothelle had been a long-time employee of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, our Activity Director knew we had a wonderful opportunity to surprise our beloved resident.
For 41 years, Cothelle was the announcer for the Main Exhibit Hall for the Stock Show, a great Forth Worth tradition. Before she was an announcer, Cothelle was a bikini model for the hot tub display at the event. When we learned of Cothelle’s incredible history with the Fort Worth Stock Show, we reached out to her former supervisor, Pam Wright, and we planned a very special day.
Cothelle, along with her son Clint and his wife Denise, spent the day at the Stock Show and Rodeo. She was given the honor of announcing the opening of the Main Exhibit Hall, in true Cothelle fashion. The party was treated to a wonderful lunch at the exclusive Backstage Club, catered by the famous Fort Worth Reata restaurant. When lunch was all wrapped up, we were provided box seat tickets to watch the rodeo in style.
This was a truly wonderful day for Cothelle and her family. She told us she couldn’t have been happier. Our team at Courtyards at River Park plans on taking her back next time for what we’ll call “Coco’s Day at the Stock Show.”
