Friends of Rocheport T-Shirt Contest

Sponsored by Conrad & Dixie  Yates

Conrad & Dixie Yates have agreed to sponsor the Friends of Rocheport T-shirt Contest again this year.  So, don't forget to take your Friends of Rocheport t-shirts with you on vacation or when you do something fun this summer.  Just snap a pic wearing your t-shirt and submit it to [email protected] or mail it to Friends of Rocheport, P.O .Box 122, Rocheport, MO  65279.

The winner of the contest gets breakfast for four (4) at Yates House (a $60 value).  Ava and Maisy (pictured above) heard how incredible this breakfast is so they tried to enter last year.  Unfortunately, they were disqualified since they weren't human.  There aren't too many rules to the contest - wear your Friends of Rocheport t-shirt, submit your picture before September 30, 2018 and be human and you have a chance to win!!!  Feel free to submit your pets' photos in Friends of Rocheport t-shirts.  We would love to see them.  They just can't win the prize! 

The Friends of Rocheport has a Walking Tour Brochure so you can take a self-guided tour around Rocheport.  Patrick Cronan prepared the walking tour and it tells many of the historic stories of Rocheport.  Click here to start our walking tour.
