Yesterday, May 10th, Kaylei Buskohl turned 13 and has really felt the impacts of being in isolation, shared her mom Christl Buskohl. “So much so that she hasn’t wanted anyone to acknowledge it .” Riverton Police Department (RPD) Captain Todd Byerly arranged for an officer to join in a surprise birthday parade for Kaylei yesterday afternoon to help this new teen feel special.
The week before, AMR, RPD, and the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office organized a parade to surprise Kendrick Mills on his 5th birthday. At the end of April, the Lander Volunteer Fire Department (LVFD) surprised Lander Valley High School senior and aspiring firefighter Gavin Dixon.
This support is not limited to individual residents, the Riverton Fire Department made a point to attend community events like the Friday Night Cruise.
The Lander Police Department and LVFD will be escorting the LVHS, Pathfinder High School, and Wyoming Catholic College Class of 2020 parade on Friday, May 15th.
These are just a handful of examples about local law enforcement and emergency responders going above and beyond for Fremont County residents during this time of change. We know there are more stories out there, but having this type of recognition and participation in the community has been greatly appreciated by everyone.
