Harvest Celebration & Potluck

Each fall since 2005 the Powder River Basin Resource Council community welcomes one and all to join the fun at our annual Harvest Celebration & Potluck in the Sheridan/Buffalo area. There is something for everyone:  great music, bountiful and fabulous home-cooked food (Powder River provides a locally sourced meat dish, then attendees load the buffet laden with delicious, locally grown and prepared dishes), enticing raffle prizes, and a spirited auction of “Pies by Guys.” This is the time for friends and neighbors to rub elbows, enjoy friendly conversation, and savor good food. Adults and children alike: all are welcome!
