The 3 Pete’s Uniting Needles Together.

Downtown Needles, CA: Last Saturday, the community came together as family to remember the 3 Pete’s as well as at the 1st Annual Horseshoe Tournament and Family Day in the Park at Santa Fe Park in Downtown Needles, California.

Many people from throughout the Colorado River Tri-State area event for a day of fun, tasty bar-b-que, and horseshoes.

The event started with a moment of silence, a prayer, and the National Anthem by Lisa Hernandez; a message from Pete Rodriguez II was read giving thanks to the many supports saying,

“I want a thank everybody for being here today to celebrate in honor and memories of the Pete’s. My name is Pete Rodriguez II. I am the father of Pele the III. I am the Grandfather of Pete the IV, and I am the Great-Grandfather of Pete the V. Once again I want to thank you all for being here for your kindness and support. God Bless You All.”

In tribute to the 3 Pete’s, Pete Rodriguez II and Daniel Rodriguez throw out the first horseshoe. Later, the second horseshoe thrown out by Tommy Rodriguez, Raymond Limon, and the third horseshoe was thrown out by Gabriel and Maria Rodriguez.

Over 35 teams sign up to play in the horseshoe tournament.

Money raise at the 1st Annual Horseshoe Tournament and Family Day in the Park went to the 3 Pete’s Memorial Foundation which is a non-profit organization that gives back to the community, aid in the promotion of youth education, personal development, and moral growth.

The 3 Pete’s Memorial Foundation was built in honor of 3 generations; Pete Rodriguez III, Pete Rodriguez IV and Pete Rodriguez V who loved giving back to their community as well as helping other.

As we all unite together to remember Pete Rodriguez III, Pete Rodriguez IV, and Pete Rodriguez V; may we all never stop the caring and helping spirit. Please go out and help out in your community; give to a local food bank, volunteer at a homeless shelter, or even help clean up you neighborhood.
