Welcome, Diocese! FAB canceled
Date posted: October 4, 2013
The FAB Women’s Conference was canceled this morning due to weather and power outages throughout the city.
Speakers stranded, roads closed — the fate of Wyoming weather I suppose.
Stay tuned for announcements about rescheduling and thank you for all of your support.
Sheridan is the host city for the 47th annual Episcopal Diocese and Convention. More than 250 people will be in the city, representing 49 churches in Wyoming, according to a diocese spokesperson in Cheyenne. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church of Sheridan will be the host with two special services Friday night and Sunday morning. Bishop Isaiah Chambala and his wife, Ezerda, from the Diocese of Kiteto, Tanzania, will be keynote speaker.
The Rev. John Inserra, Rector of St. Peter’s, is the convention’s courtesy chairman and leadership.
The Log, the official publication/newsletter of the Sheridan County Historical Society, is one of the best around – interesting, edited well, a good presentation of features, news and photos. It alone is worth the price of membership.
The current edition features a terrific story by Sheridan historian Mary Ellen McWilliams. She insightfully profiles the history of The Padlock Ranch and the ongoing legacy of Homer A. Scott, the ranch’s founder and how the ranch and its management has been nationally recognized for its environmental stewardship and conversation. The ranch’s early beginnings, too, is a segment of a good read.
Would imagine they’re available at the first-rate county museum on Fifth Street.
Erin Butler, the marketing director at the WYO Theater, says ticket sales and rehearsals of the forthcoming presentation of “Cabaret” are going well.
The annual fund raising gala of the WYO, in the midst of major renovations to improve and expand its appeal, will be Oct. 19. The evening will have food, drink, a lively atmosphere and feature a presentation of the Broadway show. The play will also run Oct. 24-27.
Ms. Butler is the play’s director, her sixth. She has a degree in theater from the University of Wyoming.
Incidentally, the Aaron Tippin concert, postponed from an earlier date this past summer, has been rescheduled at the WYO for Nov. 7. Info: 672-9084; www.wyotheater.com.
