Geologic evolution of the Bighorn Mountains lecture @ Room 008, Thorne-Rider Campus Center, Sheridan College
Nov 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — As part of the Sheridan College faculty lecture series, Tom Johannesmeyer will present at 7 p.m. Thursday on the geologic evolution of the Bighorn Mountains.

Johannesmeyer will focus on the single most important geologic event that shaped the landscape of this corner of Wyoming: the Laramide Orogeny.  This mountain building event, which began in the Cretaceous period and culminated in the Eocene epoch folded and faulted the bedrock units to form the Bighorn Mountains and the adjacent Bighorn and Powder River Basins.

The lecture will provide a detailed overview of the major fault and fold structures of the Bighorn Mountains and their relationship to the physical geography of the Bighorns, the sedimentary record and thermochronology studies which constrain the age of this mountain building event, and the global tectonic processes that caused the Laramide Orogeny.

The event will take place in Room 008 in the Thorne-Rider Campus Center at Sheridan College. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

For additional information, contact Misty Bateman at 674-6446, ext. 2830.

Trees of Love open house @ Sheridan Memorial Hospital
Dec 6 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The annual tree lighting open house for Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Christmas Trees of Love will be Sunday from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the front lobby of the hospital. The trees will be lit at 5 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, the trees provide residents the opportunity to dedicate a light in honor or memory of a friend or family member. White lights memorialize a deceased loved one; green lights honor a relative or friend; and red lights honor a child or a pet.

“Lights can be dedicated to a loved one with a donation of $5 or more any time until Dec. 31. However, donations that are received after the tree lighting may not be acknowledged until after the first of the year,” said Joan Kalasinsky, chairperson for the Trees of Love project.

While many people purchase lights for someone who is no longer living, the lights also make an excellent holiday gift for a friend, neighbor or loved one.

With the donation, the Auxiliary sends a card to the honoree or the family informing them of the dedication. The honoree’s name is then inscribed in the Book of Love, which will be on display in the hospital lobby during the holidays.

“Last year, it was overwhelming to see the growth in the support of the program,” Kalasinsky said. “I encourage people to join us at the lighting again this year and to remember friends and family with lights.”

Each year proceeds from the Trees of Love project go to fund a needed project or piece of equipment for the hospital.

Application forms are available at the hospital’s reception desk or in businesses and offices throughout the community and on the hospital’s website, www.sheridanhospital.org.
