World champion trick roper performs at Salem Lutheran Church
Joan Wells, women's world champion trick roper, presented the Speakers Bureau Living History Program, "Trick Roping on the Wild West Shows," at Salem Lutheran Church last Wednesday. Joan won the title in 1979 at the Will Rogers Trick Roping Contest and in 1989 was inducted to the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame as a cowgirl honoree.
During the program, Joan told the history of the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show which was created by Buffalo Bill in 1883 following his "Old Glory Blow Out" show in North Platte. She then demonstrated the roping tricks of that era, including using an 80 foot rope and twirling three ropes simultaneously. The children in attendance were delighted to receive one on one instruction from Joan following the program and did very well.
Joan continues to perform for western theme events, schools, museums, conventions, stage shows and has also performed roping tricks while standing on horseback during wild west show re-enactments. She is sponsored by the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau. Humanities Nebraska receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Nebraska Legislature, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and private donations. The local program was hosted by the Salem Lutheran Church Women.

Each year, the board approves a budget, which determines how much revenue is necessary and available and where it will be allocated. Board members also set policy concerning league programs and legislation.
The league is a nonprofit organization of cities and villages established in the late 1800s to represent municipalities in the legislature. The league's functions include sponsoring educational seminars, publishing a magazine and newsletters, representing its member cities and villages on state advisory boards and answering technical questions. The top priority is representing its members in the legislative process.
