Welcome home planned for injured Nimrod bull rider

A benefit and welcome home for Sam Bell will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Nimrod Hall and J & J's Bar and Grill.

Bell was badly injured at the Nimrod Bull Bash on Sept. 3, and has been recovering from the incident every since. He suffered injuries to his brain, lungs and ribs.

The benefit is to help his family offset the cost of medical expenses and travel expenses related to his injuries.

A meat and mashed potato feed will be held from 4-7 p.m. at both the Nimrod Hall and J & J's Bar and Grill. A silent auction will be held from 4-6:30 p.m. at the Nimrod Hall and a live auction and raffle will be held at 8 p.m. at J & J Bar and Grill.
