Great Chamber Barbecue! Go Warriors!

We had a wonderful time as a family, getting out of the house, and going down to the Worland Community Complex for the annual Chamber Customer Appreciation Barbecue- 2010. This is something I look forward to each and every year! Instead of being on the grass in front of the Washakie County Courthouse this year, it was held at the WCC for the first time. There was a lot more room for Worland citizens to sit and enjoy a hot served meal by chamber members which included, juicy hot roast beef sandwiches, great hot dogs, tasty potato salad, thirst quenching Pepsi products (of course!), and sweet desserts.
As we enjoyed laughing and visiting with family and friends, and eating our meals on the sidelines of the youth football field, the athletic directors, coaches, and teachers, introduced our student athletes and band members from Worland High School. Of course, the Worland High School Marching Band played a few tunes for us too. It is always a proud moment for us parents as our Worland kids are introduced to the community. I was also thankful that the sound system was adequate for all to hear the announcements; it is usually difficult to hear when you have over half of the town present. I was also thankful that most of the little kids, including my youngest son, had plenty of room to run around and play, especially in the playground area across the street at Sander's Park.

Thanks Worland-Ten Sleep Chamber for having this event each year. I look forward to meeting and greeting our friends and family each year at this event, kicking off the new school year, including all the athletic events. Thanks for supporting our kids! Thanks for the good food! Thanks for making our community a safe place to raise kids!.....and GO WORLAND WARRIORS!

Hey there, greetings from Yreka, California. What can you tell me about your community? We're looking for a place to move to and get out of this state in a couple years. We have friends who moved there and love it. I hunt and fish, and the wife fishes. We play bluegrass music: I play the mandolin, guitar, banjo and a TINY bit of bass and the wife plays stand up bass and some guitar. Any place for us to fit in you think? Feel free to email me. Thanks.

We like to make sure that as many people as possible can be "plugged in" using their gifts to serve the Lord. If that means being used for special music, great. If it means being used for outreach events...thats great too. As far as describing the Worland, Wyoming area, here the Worland-Ten Sleep Chamber of Commerce website. It will do a lot better job describing the Worland area then I can. Worland is a great place to live!
