1)         There are a couple of things to note:   Coal Mine & Power Plant Tour

            We need to know the number on these tours to arrange transportation

            There is a tour on Friday and Saturday, if we have a large request we will do

            everything possible to accommodate all who would like to participate.

2)         If we have interest, we will hold a short presentation from the Wyoming Community Foundation regarding how to set up an endowment without using cash and how to plan for the future.

                  YES,  I would be interested in attending a workshop on endowments.

3)         We request that each chapter attending bring a basket for a silent auction on Saturday night with proceeds going to the Wyoming Historical Society Foundation.

4)         Gillette Avenue (Main Street) is just undergoing a complete renovation and we welcome you to explore and enjoy the great work and new look for downtown.
