(Sweetwater County, Wyo. - December 14, 2022) The Sweetwater County Historical Museum recently hosted a holiday “thank you” dinner at the Hitching Post in Green River for its volunteers, board members, and former board members
“Our volunteers and board members provide invaluable services and support we simply could not function without,” said Executive Director Dave Mead. “One volunteer, for instance, has scanned over 8,000 historical photographs in our collection. Others help with creating exhibits and special presentations. Every spring we stage our History Fair, which is attended by 700 to 800 3rd Grade students from throughout the county. That requires a dozen volunteers doing presentations every day for nearly a week, and another friend of the museum, Bill Taliaferro, loans his sheep camp. We’re very grateful for everything these fine people do for us, and for the time and hard work our board members provide.”
