The season for giving Thanks is here…and it is the perfect time for us to express our appreciation to all the friends who have contributed to Wyoming PBS over the past year. Our underwriters, members, donors, the Wyoming Legislature, our governing Boards – the Central Wyoming College Board of Trustees and Wyoming Community College Commission, our very important Wyoming PBS Foundation, and of course, all the volunteers who help us during pledge drives and other events. The staff at Wyoming PBS extends our sincere thanks to each of you – you make our work and achievements possible!
Wyoming PBS sponsored several very successful events in September and October. Our “Prohibition” screenings at Western Wyoming Community College, the University of Wyoming, and Central Wyoming College were well attended and we heard some very entertaining stories about moonshine, the prostitution tax in Cheyenne, the hated revenuers, and underground tunnels in Hudson – Wyoming was an exciting place to be during Prohibition! We also had a tailgate tent before the University of Wyoming/Nebraska football game to promote the Prohibition series. A very busy fall season!
Coming up: November is “Native American Heritage Month”, and several programs are scheduled to honor our tribal neighbors. Another important holiday – Veterans’ Day – is commemorated this month, so watch for special programming on November 10-11-12. It is important for us to pay tribute to the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedoms, and we salute all the soldiers who have served and are serving this great nation! Thank you.
Finally, it is time for another winter festival – the end-of the year, membership drive begins on November 26, and you’ll find some terrific new shows – The Greatest Duets, Ed Sullivan Comedy Special, Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli in Central Park, and “Doc Martin” encores this month – all this and much more on your Wyoming PBS station.
