Some very special people got a special experience in Coffeyville last night. The annual Buddy Barrow Show, part of the Inter-State Fair and Rodeo, took place. Youth from 4-H and FFA programs that had showed their barrow, were paired up with people with special needs, to show the barrow as part of a showmanship contest. About thirty special needs people participated, and a grand champion and reserve champion were determined. Randy Lee won grand champion and Charles Landrum was reserve champion.
Both men live in Independence and both have participated in the Buddy Barrow Show several times.
