(Lander, WY) – The 1st Annual Lander Community Pig Roast, which will take place in Lander City Park on September 18th, at 1:00 PM, is currently selling raffle tickets for a half hog, and also in need of volunteers.
Tickets for the raffle are $5 each, or $20 for five tickets, and can be purchased at the following locations: Lander City Hall, Central Bank and Trust, the Elks Club, Lander VFW Post 954 & Auxiliary, Meridian Trust and Tony’s Pizza.
Any Riverton folks can pick up raffle tickets at the County 10 office, but you must be present at the event to claim your prize.
