Welcome to April. We in Opp are looking forward to baseball games and the Rattlesnake Rodeo.

Don’t forget opening day for Baseball/Softball is April 5th. I will throw the first pitch of the season and I am looking forward to throwing a strike! Come out to Opp Parks and Recreation and watch the girls and boys play ball. They have planned a big day filled with fun for the entire family.

April 12th and 13th are the dates for the 54th Annual Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo. I can’t wait to see everyone out having a good time. We have great things planned for this year’s rodeo. We have some local acts that will entertain you up until the main event on Saturday night as well as Sunday. For just $10.00 a day you can have an exciting good time. Easton Corbin will be performing on Saturday night and Sunday will include Building 429, Hawk Nelson and Family Force Five.

The DRA has scheduled the 1st Annual Miss Opp pageant for April 26th and participants have until April 19th to sign up for this event. It will be held at Opp High School Auditorium starting at 2:00pm. Girl’s ages 0-21 can be a part of this pageant.

I hope everyone is enjoying the benefits of having the railroad tracks removed and the roads paved. We are continuing to pave and patch streets throughout the city. The storm drains and sewer and water lines are being replaced at the Veterans Pool site.

April is a good time to spring clean. We are asking our residents to help get the city looking good for the Rattlesnake Rodeo visitors.

Please be safe this month and enjoy your spring.
