Powder River Basin Resource Council members gather annually to weigh issues and policy positions and pass new resolutions, which become the organization’s official policy. But our Annual Meeting, usually held the first Saturday in November, is more than a policy session. It’s a chance for dedicated citizens and community leaders from throughout the state to gather for a little socializing and to just have some fun.
The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to support our valuable work. The Annual Meeting’s popular Silent Auction is our organization’s most lucrative fundraising event of the year, offering beautiful antiques, locally crafted jewelry, stunning artwork by members and non-members alike, sporting goods, vacation opportunities in Wyoming and around the world, and services provided by professional fishing and hunting guides.
Each fall since 2005 the Powder River Basin Resource Council community welcomes one and all to join the fun at our annual Harvest Celebration in Sheridan. There is something for everyone: great music, bountiful and fabulous home-cooked food (try the roast pig and beef brisket along with a buffet laden with delicious, locally grown and prepared dishes), enticing raffle prizes, a farmers’ market, line dancing 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, and beverages. Adults and children alike: all are welcome!
Stayed tuned for information on upcoming events.
