Jack Gerdon ropes a calf at the Efland Ruritan Club Rodeo on Friday night. The club grew out of the closing of the Efland Elementary School in the late 1970s when residents of the rural Orange County community rallied to buy the property. The aged building was demolished but club members hope to someday build a community center. The rodeo, now in its 20th year, attracts thousands over two nights and helps raise money for the club’s community programs
