Our community rallies, and Cheyenne Frontier Days is no exception. Business partners and community members alike spend their days volunteering in groups or as families through events at Cheyenne Frontier Days, the Old Fashioned Melodrama that the Cheyenne Little Theatre Players hosts, and much more. There was no exception as partners celebrated our agricultural roots during the annual kick-off luncheon to Cheyenne Frontier Days - Pardners 'N Prosperity.
This year the annual Pardners 'N Prosperity presented by RE/MAX Capitol Properties luncheon hosted by the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce featured its own unique volunteers and attendees, as well! Volunteers from the Future Farmers of America, to the Wyoming Congressional Award, helped create an atmosphere of agriculture and growth as it celebrated our heritage and roots. Items were auctioned as a fundraising effort to help these students in their agricultural pursuits, this year specifically to help the growth of the Wyoming State Fair.
Farmers and ranchers that have grown this area over the last 150 years were present, many adding their family brands to the growing "Branding Board" as they represented the heritage of their familial roots. Many families were present, and Stacia Berry spoke on behalf of the Berry Herefords, as a direct link between the rich agricultural history and the fostering of youth to take the reins.
Attendees had the chance to hear from sponsor, West Edge Collective as they presented the 2017 video, shown below.
