The Hashknife Posse was presented with a wooden sign engraved with the names of each member of the posse taking part in this year’s Pony Express Ride. The sign will have a home at the Navajo County Historic Courthouse and a duplicate sign will be in Scottsdale. Standing to the right of the sign are Posse Captain Mark Reynolds, Randy Murph, owner of Welding Services and Supply in Holbrook, who not only made the signs, but donated the materials, Trail Boss Tim Kelley and Holbrook Recreation Director Louie Baldonado, who facilitated the project and assisted Murph.
