- Served as State Representative from the Lander district for 14 years
- Served as President of the Wyoming Employees Association
- Been a longtime Wyoming Department of Transportation employee

The event will be hosted at the Lander Community Center. Dinner will be catered by Wyoming Catholic College and the team at Mr. D’s will tend a bar for the event.
Tickets are $25 and are available at the Lander Chamber of Commerce.
From the current FCAG Board and Administrator Gary Michaud to Mr. Delbert McOmie:
“Mayor McOmie – you are an outstanding citizen of our county and public servant. It has been a pleasure to serve Fremont County with you. There is no possible way we can quantify all of the amazing accomplishments you have been a part of over your lifetime or sacrifices you and your family have made for our community. However, one thing is for sure – all the future generations of Landerites will enjoy the efforts of Mr. Delbert McOmie Sr. and that is priceless. Thank you sir.”
