Oct Meeting / Adopt-A-Highway / Sept Minutes & More!

Hello Sheridan County Democrats and Friends,

Changing leaves and snow on the mountain tops. Deep breath as we celebrate the strength we have as like-minded folks coming together.

Tomorrow, Sunday the 8th,  we have the opportunity to spend time in the crisp air as we again do community service and pick up litter for a stretch out Loucks for our ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY commitment. Contact Bob Ahrens (bahrens50@gmail.com) for location, we’re meeting at 1pm. Trash bags and vests are provided. Bring your gloves. Sturdy footwear is encouraged.

This Tuesday is our regular MONTHLY MEETING on the 10th, 6pm, rear entrance at the Hub on Smith and on Zoom. Our speaker is Tony Lecholat, Legislative Rep, Div 624, for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLE&T.) Unions are in the news – find out what is happening locally & around our state. 

It was voted to share our MONTHLY MINUTES to the whole mailing list. You’ll find the attachment of the ‘Draft’ at the very bottom of this email. In the future, we/me will get them out shortly after the meeting so you can see what was discussed and hopefully join us next time. Come and meet your neighbor! If you attended last month, please review to see if you find any additions or corrections so that the minutes can be approved by your vote next week.

LUNCH TOGETHER has been moved up one week to Tuesday the 17th due to a company stepping down. Patty Kemper is our new organizer. Please respond to this email if you can prepare a side dish or dessert, or help serve and clean-up.

We proudly wear our buttons so the community knows we’re Here For Good!

A brief update on the Columbus Peak Ranch Land Exchange Public Hearing that the State Lands Action Team (SLAT) organized  for this last Wed the 4th. The agenda included background on the land exchange and a negotiation update. One disheartening fact – since 1890, more State Trust Land in Sheridan County has been lost in sales and exchanges than any other county in Wyoming. I counted over 150 people who showed up to express their concern. Some verbally, others just by their presence. The Communications Committee will be sending out contact information for the members of the State Board of Land Commissioners who will be voting in December on this important issue.

There are a number of opportunities to spend time with like-minded people. You are not alone.

Join us. We are Here For Good! 

Martha J Wright, Chairwoman
