Sharon Livingston was named the 2017 ’62 Days Grand Marshall.

Canyon City, Ore. (June 21, 2017) – The Annual ’62 Days event was celebrated in Canyon City, Oregon this past weekend by a variety of event-goers. A unique event that highlights the discovery of gold in the town on June 8, 1862, it is celebrated for two days every year in June.

This year’s parade was highlighted with a Grand Marshal familiar to the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association as well as agriculturalist across the nation; Sharon Livingston of Grant County.

In 2016, Sharon was named the AgLink Agriculturalist of the Year and accepted the award in Portland, Oregon at the prestigious “Denim & Diamonds” event.

Sharon Livingston and her son, Fred, ride their Bill Smith horses through the ’62 Days Parade.

A former Oregon Cattlemen’s Association President in 2006 & 2007, Sharon is currently finishing her term on the Oregon Beef Council Board.
