Women of WWI @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
Nov 15 @ 6:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will host an educational program about women in the military during World War I on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Inner Circle.

World War I was the first time women could enlist in the U.S. military in capacities other than nursing. The program will discuss the pioneering women who paved the way for women’s suffrage and the expansion of women’s roles outside the home. The program focuses on the Navy’s female yeomen, but will also highlight nurses on the front lines and other roles.

The presenter, Lynne Puckett, spent more than 30 years in the U.S. Navy and Naval Reserve and is currently the Networking Services Librarian at Billings Public Library, where she has worked for almost 20 years. The program is free and appropriate for all ages.

In conjunction with the program, the Inner Circle features an exhibit of photos and information about Sheridan County enlisted men, women who served as nurses and several sketches of war scenes by Sheridan resident George Ostrom who was a soldier during the war. Display cases outside The Wyoming Room feature additional WWI photos and memorabilia.

The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.

 

Wyoming dinosaurs @ Sheridan College
Nov 15 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will offer the next presentation in its science lecture series Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Mars Agriculture Center at Sheridan College.

Brent Breithaupt, a paleontologist with the Bureau of Land Management in Cheyenne, will present “Big Wonderful Wyoming’s Jurassic World of Dinosaurs: Like No Place on Earth.”

Wyoming is known worldwide because of paleontological work done here over the past 150 years. In particular, the fossils and rocks exposed throughout this western state preserve Jurassic life and environments unlike anywhere else on the planet.

Consequently, past and current discoveries have dominated the media and have led to the popularization of dinosaurs and their contemporaries worldwide.

Breithaupt has been studying the geology and paleontology of the Mesozoic Era for more than 35 years and will give an entertaining and informative talk about the life and times of the animals that once roamed, swam and flew in Wyoming during the Jurassic Period, as well as the people and expeditions that unearthed these fascinating, ancient creatures, which are so well known in our popular culture.

The event is free and open to the public.

For additional information contact Dr. Scott Newbold at 307-674-6446, ext. 3112, or snewbold@sheridan.edu.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.
