REGISTER NOW FOR THE ANNUAL BANQUET
“Sheep probably paid for more ranches in Wyoming than did cattle, and though
cattle and sheep wars in Wyoming happened—what we think we know is more
the stuff of fiction than reality,” according to John D. Farr, story teller,
historian and sheep rancher. Farr is the guest speaker at the Cheyenne
Genealogical & Historical Society’s annual banquet to be held at the
Cheyenne Radisson Hotel, 204 W Fox Farm Road, on Tuesday, May 10. The CGHS
annual dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Phoenix Room of the
Radisson with check-in, a silent auction and dinner at 6 p.m. as a prelude
to the program at 7 p.m. Reservations, entré selection (chicken or beef)
and check for the dinner, which is $17.00, must be postmarked by
