Mike Kassel, Assistant Director/Curator Jul 22, 2020
Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum
 
As Cheyenne feels its way through this unprecedented health crisis, we are all mystified and saddened by what we have had to sacrifice to keep our community and families safe.  2020 will go down as a year of many firsts, including being the first year in which Cheyenne Frontier Days cannot be held.  This historic event will give way to a brighter future for CFD and everyone at the park, the Museum included, are preparing for a bigger and better celebration in our 125th year.  While the rodeo, parades and other events will have to wait, it is fun to know that there is a chance to glimpse far back into our past to see what CFD was like before it became the American Western blockbuster it is today.
 
Join Mike Kassel, Assistant Director and Curator of the CFD Old West Museum, as he presents a unique and fascinating look at the very earliest Cheyenne Frontier Days caught on film.  Parts of this spectacular movie, shot in 1911, have been seen before in public.  What has not accompanied these viewings are the stories that go with the silent pictures - the daring acts, the lucky escapes and the wild west action caught in the day's newspapers and captured in living black and white.  If you miss the rodeo, this film will satisfy your cravings and inspire you to look forward to 2021.

Governor Mark Gordon Jul 29, 2020
State budget crisis and issues facing Wyoming

Mark Gordon was elected Wyoming's 33rd Governor, on Nov. 6, 2018.

Growing up on the family ranch in Johnson County, Governor Gordon learned the values of hard work and integrity and the importance of working together. As Governor, he brings those values to the table in pursuing his commitment that Wyoming continues to be a place where its citizens can pursue their dreams while retaining its unique character. He is a strong believer in Wyoming's ability to chart its own course and a staunch defender of its interests to do so.

Governor Gordon will be speaking on the serious financial crisis Wyoming is facing. While the pandemic accelerated the problem, our primary revenue source (minerals) has been in a long-term decline.
