Warm weekend ahead for Easter services and Spring activities

    Don’t look now, but we might be trending toward some real Spring weather…it wouldn’t be much of a challenge, but it’d still be fun with all those colorful eggs scattered in the snow for the Easter Egg hunts! But maybe now we can take advantage of some “sweater weather” and hop around to all of the great things happening this weekend!

    Several churches and places of worship have contacted me to post their Good Friday-Easter Sunday services that are taking place…if I didn’t get yours in, you can always add your service times to County 10’s event calendar. Just click on “Add Event”, sign up on CitySpark, and fill in your information.

    Celebrate a fun and safe Easter weekend, Fremont County!


    On (Good) Friday…

    It’s the First Friday of the month, and you know what that means…free admission for the kiddos at all Fremont County museums (with paying adult(s). All of the museums have some way cool events coming up, so be sure to ask about them while you’re there (I’ve gotta say, I’m  actually quite fascinated by the “70’s Time Capsule” that will be opened on April 22nd!) Visit

    Lander’s First Friday will be hoppin’ tonight as there is an awesome lineup of participating businesses readying for a night of activities, specials, discounts…art, music, food, and shopping! Mr. D’s will host local author Amy D. Reed, with Stompin’ Grounds offering coffee specials and some wine tasting…Scott Robeson Custom Woodworking is having a Bible journaling class, Crio Bru (cacao) samplers…Lander Bodyworks will teach you how to “cut a rug” with country western dance lessons…at Rebound, the Art of Repurposing, Lander maker Melinda Bausch will actually be making a rug…Snow Deep Designs will have a “print your own” set-up…make DIY origami seedling planters at Alchemy…while you’re out and about having fun, stop in for some awesome food and desserts at participating cafes and restaurants…all of this and more “in store” for tonight in Lander.
