  “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

Monday, April 25, to CGHS, P.O. Box 2539, Cheyenne, WY 82003.

Guests wishing to attend the program-only for $5 may register at the door.

Farr is a featured speaker with the Wyoming Humanities Council Roads

Scholar Program. He graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree

in Agricultural Economics & Natural Resources. He is a founder of the

Ghost Town Club of Colorado, a now 55-year-old organization, and he

is active with many historical groups and museums across the west.
