Although it’s already September, there’s still a hint of summer’s warmth to take advantage of—and still a chance to complete a bingo over Labor Day! In honor of Challenge for Charities’ 10th anniversary, the Wyoming Outdoor Council created a Lander-specific bingo game and you’re invited to play along in appreciation of our community. If you didn’t get a bingo card, you can download one here. In order to be eligible to win a host of great local prizes, all you need to do is complete a bingo and submit photos of each activity to [email protected] by September 4. On September 8, we’ll host a drawing of the submissions to determine the winners.

Prizes include:

  • A pair of Maven C.2 — 7X28/10X28 binoculars
  • A $70 gift card to The Bike Mill for an advanced tune-up
  • A $250 gift certificate for a packrafting or whitewater trip with Wyoming Rivers Cooperative (used for existing offerings or a custom trip by June 2021)
  • Two books on Wyoming’s conservation history and a Wyoming Outdoor Council gift membership
  • A $50 gift certificate to Wild Iris Mountain Sports and a WIMS t-shirt

For more information, or if you have any questions, email Claire Cella at [email protected]. Since 1967, the Wyoming Outdoor Council has been working to protect Wyoming’s environment and quality of life. And we love seeing our members embodying this mission—enjoying the public lands, wildlife, and clean air and water this state has to offer. We hope you join us this year in playing bingo and soaking in the last bit of summer. Good luck.


The Good Samaritan Community Meal in Lander welcomes all those who are suffering from hunger in the Lander area. We serve 100-200 people every Friday night at the First United Methodist Church. A variety of local Lander organizations volunteer every week to cook and serve a hot meal to our neighbors in need.  

Due to COVID-19, we have suspended our community meal service until September 25th when we will start up curbside service at 5:30-6:30. Our kick-off event is Friday, September 4th at Centennial Park on Main Street, Lander! From 5:00-7:00 we will be handing out free Box Meals to the first 200 people along with a flier telling about our September start-up.  Come on down!
