Leeton Jo & Kim Phillips

The Phillips Family has been a part of and has supported the Riding Club since it was organized in 1957. Beginning with Leeton’s great uncle, Arthur Phillips, and with his father, Billy Phillips, the Phillips family has offered the Riding Club their pasture for the staging area for the rodeo parade every year since the parade began. Leeton and Kim have con nued this to the present day. Leeton remembers his father Billy Phillips and his great uncle Arthur being members of the Riding Club early on. Leeton is the great grandson of George Washington “G.W.” Phillips who built the Phillips House in 1913. Leeton grew up going to the rodeo and watching the parade. Leeton earned a BS in Agricultural Economics from Texas A&M University and worked in Dallas as a Commercial Property Underwriter. He married Kim Liudahl in June 1986, and they lived in Flower Mound. Kim earned a BA degree from the University of North Texas and also worked in Dallas. Leeton’s father Billy died in 1989, and Leeton began opera ng Phillips Ranch long distance. They renovated the Phillips house and moved to Saint Jo in 1996. Leeton and Kim have one son, William, born in 1992, who is married to Alli. They enjoy spending me with their new granddaughter Sloan.

The 64th Annual Saint Jo Rodeo is Dedicated to Dalton Lyons 05/07/1949 to 09/05/2020

The 64th Annual Saint Jo Rodeo is dedicated to Dalton Lyons. Dalton was our friend and a beloved member of the Saint Jo Riding Club. He was a Lifetime Member and served in many leadership positions for more than 4 decades. Dalton graduated from Saint Jo High School in 1967. After high school he served in the U.S. Navy. In 1973, he married Cindy (the love of his life) and they have 3 children, Rusty, Jody and Marty. Dalton and his family were always involved in Riding Club and Rodeo activities. He always took vacation the week prior to the annual rodeo, so he could make sure the pens were ready and the grounds were mowed. In the early days of the rodeo, the gate proceeds were the only source of revenue. There were some years it did not cover the cost of the event. Dalton took the suggestion of finding sponsors, called on local businesses, sold sponsorships for the Saint Jo Rodeo and helped to financially keep it going. He always wanted the Saint Jo Rodeo to be the very best - like it was in the 1950s and 1960s. In 2017, The Saint Jo Riding Club had a trail ride to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Chisholm Trail. Dalton was the “Trail Boss” (with the help of grandson, Dakota). He led the riders cross-country from the Saint Jo Rodeo Arena, through the Phillips Ranch and then, through the Field Ranch to the ranch house where his family once lived. Thank-you, Dalton, for all of the fun times and wonderful, cherished memories. Dalton Lyons will be missed by all who knew him.

The Saint Jo Riding Club was organized by Weldon Dennis in 1957, with the first Saint Jo Rodeo held in 1958. This bold and enthusiastic venture, which most people would hesitate to begin, has been an annual Saint Jo “tradition” now for 64 years. The first President was Weldon Dennis; Vice President was Charles Dennis; Secretary/Treasurer was Starr Mann; and Bobby Tuggle (Noah Pitman's granddaughter) was the first Sweetheart. During their first year the Saint Jo Riding Club participated in many parades, but only brought home one 3rd place trophy. Mack Thweatt was the next President in those early years of getting the club organized. He was followed by F. C. Galmor, who served for two years as President. For that first rodeo, the crowd sat and watched from the hillside. Much progress took place from the very beginning, and in 1960, the first rodeo arena was built. Throughout the years, the entire Saint Jo community and the surrounding areas have cooperated in enlarging and improving the present Saint Jo Riding Club Arena and all of its facilities. In the early years, a concession stand was added but it was 1987 before city water was run down to the arena. In July of 1998, the concrete pavilion was added around the concession stand. This rodeo arena stands as a symbol to the loyalty, good will, hard work, dedication and community spirit that existed then and continues on today. The Saint Jo Riding Club has earned hundreds of trophies through the years. You can sees our rodeo legacy and our rich history by visiting the Historic Saint Jo Square. Some of these trophies, awards, and memorabilia are displayed at The Museum of the Stonewall Saloon and at Trailtown Treasures. O. K. (Kurz) Williams followed Galmor as Riding Club President and served as President from 1962 until 1975. Craig Lawson served as President from 1976 to 1984. Charles Dennis was President from 1985 to 1994. Eli Casey was elected as President for 1995 and 1996. In 1997, Charles Dennis was again elected as President and served until 2003. Ancil Thurman was President from 2003 to 2007. Eli Casey was elected as President from 2007 to 2011. Nancee Turlington was elected and served from 2011 to 2013. Randall Flusche was President from 2013-2015 followed by Sarah Hess from 2015 to 2020. The current President of the Saint Jo Riding Club is Janette Yosten Hess.

Hello, Saint Jo and Montague county! I want to introduce myself. My name is April Jacobs, and at the end of May, my two little furbabies George, Gina, and I, sold our house and moved to Saint Jo from Manhattan, Kansas. The most common question I have received is,” Why the heck did you move to Saint Jo?” Well, right place, right time, right people, and right transition in my life and is undoubtedly one of those divine, higher power kinds of things. The first time I visited here, back in December, it quickly felt like home! I came to attend training at Advanced Coaching Leadership Center at Camp Letoli here in Saint Jo. I took the first Vital Fundamentals of Life Processing course and fell in love with the technology. I am now studying to become a professional processor. I can help you achieve your hair dreams, and I can also help you discover how you can achieve those dreams, visions, and goals for your life so you can live the ultimate life you want to live! My passion for people, the beauty industry, and training to become a processor has created the perfect combination to live my most fulfilling and purposeful life. I grew up in the tiny town of Jetmore, KS, with a population of about 800. It is very similar to this place. When I graduated high school, I couldn’t wait to get the heck out of Dodge! I moved to Manhattan, Kansas, where I attended Kansas State University. That lasted about one semester before I realized I was wasting money. I knew I was interested in cosmetology, so I enrolled in Crum’s Beauty College right there in Manhattan. From that moment, I knew I was on the right path. I love all things hair, makeup, and people and have been a stylist since 2004. Over the last 12 years, I was co-owner of a successful salon company in The Little Apple that continues to be very successful. I sold my shares, and here I am! I'm grateful for where it has brought me. So if you are wondering, “ why the heck did you move to Saint Jo?” It is because Saint Jo is a unique place. I am enamored with the people, history, small businesses, art, shopping, wineries, peacefulness, gorgeous scenery, the lively happening weekends that fill up with people from all over, live music, and the charm that adorns the square. Something big is happening here, and I’m excited to be a part of it! salonHAIR is here to provide career pathss for upcoming stylists and give top-notch experience along with luxury services to this community and surrounding area. We are excited to meet you!
