Car show, rummage sale, trap shoot, fundraisers, chocolate and Mother’s Day…all this weekend in the 10!

    Looks like lovely weather for a lovely Mother’s Day weekend! What a weird cold spell we had…I’ve been looking outside in the mornings, wondering if I’ll ever be able to get to work on my garden. But never fear, there’s always something happening and something else to do in Fremont County, and May is becoming pretty packed!

    There’s an FFA plant sale going on, a rummage sale for the fur babies, a car show at Riverton High School, and A Chocolate Affair (because moms and chocolate go hand-in-hand!)…local shops and restaurants may be offering Mother’s Day specials, so make a shopping date, or make some brunch reservations and enjoy spending time with the most important women in your life…because you wouldn’t be here without them! 

    Speaking of rummage sales…have you listed your garage sale on County 10 Garage Sales? If you’ve done a fair amount of spring cleaning, that’s a perfect platform to use in order to get your garage/yard sale event out there to the public. Garage sale dates and times, all in one place!


    The County 10 event calendar is also filling up, which is a good thing…so if you’re having an event, meeting, class, workshop, concert, etc., get it posted so we can all mark our calendars and plan this fabulous summer! Just click on “Add Event”, sign up on CitySpark, and then enter your information. You can even upload a flyer or poster!

    So enjoy the weekend, hug your mom, be safe, drive responsibly, and most of all…have fun!
