Town and Country Party returns for second year, raises funds for 4-HersWritten by Saige Albert
The event raises funds for the foundations’ activities, including scholarships, grants to committees, youth clinics, educational materials, leader training and recruitment.
Carol Whitney, Natrona County 4-H Foundation secretary, says, “The Natrona County 4-H Foundation is thrilled to continue this tradition in our community. The ‘Town and Country Party’ is a time of celebration for all members of our community.”
The Town and Country Party will be held this year on Dec. 15 at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds. The event provides fun for everyone in the family, including a silent auction, craft and trade show and selection of games.
Another feature of the Town and Country Party is the Community Spirit Award. The award focuses on honoring those business and individuals in the Casper area who actively support the endeavors of the community. This year’s winner is the Mountain View Hospital and Clinic.
“The list of things they support and do for the community is astonishing,” read the nomination.
Mountain View Hospital and Clinic participates and supports the 4-H Livestock Sale, sponsors the 4-H goat show, the Boys and GirlsClub, Jason’s Friends Foundation, Wyoming Cavalry, Casper Amateur Youth Hockey, the Science Zone, Casper Ghosts, the Jefferson Awards, Beartrap Summer Festival, National Historic Trails Center, Casper Children’s Theater, the Nicolaysen Art Museaum and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, among others.
“Everywhere you look, you see the Mountain View Hospital and Clinic participating,” added the nomination.
Mountain View Hospital and Clinic will be receiving a plaque recognizing their efforts, as well as eight complimentary tickets to the event.
In hosting the event, a number of sponsors have come forward, donating time, advertising and money to make the event a success.
“We would like to thank Greenline Equipment for being the Exclusive Sponsor of the Second Annual Town and Country Party,” Whitney comments. “We would also like to thank event sponsors Wyoming Machinery, Greiner, Fremont Motors, Wells Fargo Bank, Murdoch’s, Wyoming Livestock Roundup and Hilltop National Bank.”
On Dec. 15, doors will open at 5 p.m. Dinner by Arrowhead Catering will be served from 6-7:30 p.m.
One of the major draws for this year’s event is entertainment by Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band, who will play from 8-11 p.m. Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers are a Wyoming group that has gained national attention for their music and promise to provide a fun-filled night, adds Whitney.
Admission is $15 per person, and tickets are available at the Natrona County 4-H Office, the Wyoming Livestock Roundup, Murdoch’s and Greenline Equipment. At the door, admission increases to $20, or a dance only ticket is available beginning at 8 p.m. for $10.
