About Us


Spirit of the West is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization formed in 2002 through strategic planning for Beach and the surrounding area. Spirit of the West was created to promote and sustain the Home on the Range rodeo, give local businesses and organizations an opportunity to prosper, and encourage people to visit the area.
