Members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association hold their hats as 2013 Miss Burwell Rodeo Olivia Hunsperger passes by during the opening ceremonies on Saturday, July 27, 2013. “This may be a small town, but it’s got a big rodeo, and it’s got a really big heart,” Hunsperger said. Burwell residents work tirelessly to ensure that their annual event goes off without a hitch. It’s a communal point of pride, handed down from generation to generation.
