#Activate10: Local Lander group hopes to help businesses by offering prizes for shopping local

Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.

The Wyoming Outdoor Weekend and Expo move the shop local raffle online. Anyone can enter to win prizes just for shopping in Lander during the month of May. Each week there is a grand prize and several smaller prizes. The prizes include a medium Bigfoot 3 fatbike Weatherby rifle, Yeti cooler, and others.

Wyoming Outdoor Weekend and its hosts the Lander Economic Development Association (LEDA) and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department did not want to miss a year supporting the local community.


“The Wyoming Outdoor Weekend is all about celebrating Lander and the variety of outdoor activities available to us here in Wyoming…. since we can’t have our event this year, this is a great way we can celebrate our community and support our businesses, especially during some difficult times.” Mike Lilygren, LEDA Co-Founder
