A craft fair, fundraisers, beekeeping class, and more this weekend in Fremont County!

    February is the month when I’m already well past the aching point for flowers and green, but it looks like another weather system is coming through this weekend. I wish Mother Nature (or Lander Lil) would make up their minds. Don’t get me wrong, I love Wyoming, I love Fremont County…but I’m SO ready for Spring!

    The sports going on won’t all be about the Super Bowl this weekend! Riverton Hockey will be seeing their final home games at the rink on North Smith Road. There are a few events going on that look like they’re in prep for Valentine’s Day next week…a dance class, a ‘Galentine’s’ music event, an art sale, a bake sale, and fundraising dinners…all for those who have big hearts for Fremont County’s community groups and causes!

    If you’ll be out and about this Super Bowl Sunday, keep WRTA’s SafeRides in mind! They’ll be out and about between 4:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. in the Riverton and Lander service areas, anywhere within city limits. So ditch the keys if you’ve had a few (too) and be safe with SafeRides (literally, because the Fremont County Task Force will be out and about as well)!


    Always check with the event venues/coordinators for any canceled or postponed events. Dress warm, be well, drive safe (watch out for ice)…but most of all, have fun!
