Lander Community Foundation’s 10-for-10 Celebration is presented by Wyoming Community Bank – Your Hometown Bank with Hometown Pride.
We are proud to introduce 4 Lander nonprofits for the week of July 18-25. They are Fremont County Search and Rescue, Lander Swim Club, Wyoming Shakespeare Company, and Lander Area Pathways System through Lander Parks and Recreation.
LANDER SEARCH & RESCUE
Fremont County Search and Rescue will be holding an open house at our facility to better acquaint the public with who we are and what we do. On Thursday, July 23 from 2 – 7 pm, our doors at 625 Garfield St. will be open and SAR volunteers will be on hand to visit. Our vehicles and equipment will be outside in the fresh air so come and see what we use to help people in need. The public is invited to stop by to ask questions or just say hello!
THE LANDER SWIM CLUB
Like many service organizations and businesses in the world, the Lander Swim Club has not been able to practice as normal due to COVID-19 restrictions and repairs to the pool. July 13th marked our first day back in the water since March 15th! So for the Lander Challenge for Charities event, we decided to take the opportunity to support people in our community with limited resources by organizing donations for admission to our Open Water Fun Fest! Summer weather and warmer water allow us to host our first open water fun fest event for our swim family to safely get together and play even if we can’t compete. The event will be for registered swimmers of the Lander Swim Club. We will be at Boysen Reservoir on July 18th from 12:00-3:00 pm. We will learn a bit about water safety, open water swimming, play water games, super relays, and more!
During this event, LSC will collect donations for the Fremont County Group Homes and First Stop Help Center. Please CLICK HERE to sign up to bring needed items. If you can’t make it on July 18, you can also drop off items during a club practice at 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. at the pool on July 20-23. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
The Lander Swim Club (LSC) is very fortunate to be participating in LCF’s 10-for-10: Celebrating 10 Years of Lander’s Challenge for Charities. Please support the Lander Swim Club through the Challenge for Charities. When you donate, LSC will receive 100% of your donation, plus a matched amount of up to $10,000. Every donation—big or small— will help swimmers—and all donations are greatly appreciated!
Wyoming Shakespeare Festival Company
Wyoming Shakespeare Festival Company’s Summer Academy presents, thanks to Lander Community Foundation’s fundraising efforts, the French comedy, THE MISER, by Moliere. This production, unlike when first performed in Paris in 1668, respects our audience’s and actor’s health above all else.
We invite Lander to view an open rehearsal on Wednesday, July 22nd at 10 am in Lander Valley High School’s auditorium. There is plenty of room to keep safe distances and take all health precautions.
WSFC’s Academy has featured some of the most brilliant young actors found anywhere since 2000. We struggled with the decision to go ahead in this novel year and found we could not resist the opportunity to explore a great classic play and perform once again. We plan on performances in City Park the last week of July. We hope you join us 7/22. The strength of our performance builds through our relationship with you. Duration: about an hour.
LANDER AREA PATHWAYS SYSTEM
through Parks & Recreation
The Lander Area Pathway System is dedicated to the development and upkeep of our future and current trail system.
With the recent increase in the need for outdoor recreation, the Pathway System has proven to be a vital resource for our community. One spectacular improvement LAPS help create is the Hillcrest gravel pedestrian and bike path as well as the widening of Mortimore Rd as part of a popular walking, jogging, and biking route.
We hope you choose to donate to Lander Area Pathway System in 2020!
LAPS falls under the heading Lander Parks & Recreation in the C4C brochure
