Saturday, July 14 be sure to come out to the fairgrounds for the “Buffalo Bill” program at 12:30 p.m. Bill Boycott will present a program suitable for the entire family about the history of the Wild West and Wyoming through songs, stories and traditional Native American sign language. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
