Dementia Friendly Wyoming @ The Hub on Smith
Dec 19 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

SHERIDAN — Dementia Friendly Wyoming has invited businesses and other organizations to breakfast education sessions at The Hub on Smith Street on Dec. 5, 12, and 19 from 8:30-9:30 am. 

One in two households will be affected by dementia in the next 10 years. Any organization that is dementia friendly becomes a stakeholder in the well-being of the entire community. To become dementia friendly and receive a window cling stating “We are Dementia Friendly” each organization must:

• ensure that 50 percent of staff completes the 60-minute training.

• evaluate the business space to find simple ways to create a safe and welcoming environment.

• appoint a team leader.

• agree to additional training for new staff and those unable to attend.

Those who complete the training will understand dementia and its many causes, recognize when someone has cognitive challenges, learn at least one approach to effectively communicate and be able to locate resources for individuals living with dementia and their care partners.

The goal of the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Initiative project is to expand and significantly strengthen Sheridan County’s dementia capability to support individuals with dementia and their care partners. Call 307-461-7134 to make your reservation for the upcoming training. The Hub on Smith is located at 211 Smith St.

Big Horn Mountain Festival @ Buffalo
Jul 20 – Jul 22 all-day

BUFFALO — The dates for the 2018 Big Horn Mountain Festival have been set for July 20-22.

“Traditionally the Big Horn Mountain Festival has been on the second full weekend of July, but for the next several years that weekend conflicts with other local and regional events, including the WYO Rodeo in Sheridan,” said Paul Jarvis, one of the organizers of the event. “We have decided to move our festival one week later so local residents, merchants, vendors, motels and visitors can take advantage of all the events. We plan to have the Big Horn Mountain Festival on the third weekend in July for the foreseeable future.”

The Big Horn Mountain Festival will begin at the Johnson County Fairground in Buffalo the afternoon of July 20 and run until late in the afternoon July 22.

In addition to the band performances, the festival features workshops, demonstrations, instrument raffles, food, refreshment, and arts and crafts vendors.

Organizers of the Big Horn Mountain Festival are currently scheduling a lineup of bluegrass, old time, folk and progressive acoustic music for the 14th annual festival next July. Stay up to date on festival information at www.bighornmountainfestival.com.

The festival also offers the Big Horn Bluegrass Camp, a day camp for kids from 8-18, which will run the third week in July at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.

“We’re hoping everyone will mark their calendar now for July 20-22, 2018, and make plans to attend the 14th Big Horn Mountain Festival,” Jarvis said. “We are proud to again offer this opportunity for an enjoyable music festival which benefits our community.”
