August 9, 2019 Sage & Snow Garden Club Garden of Beauty: Cassie & Tom Johnston
Garden of Beauty – Cassie and Tom Johnston (posted 8/16/19)
Sage & Snow Garden Club
August 9, 2019 – Cassie and Tom Johnston, 61 Sandy Lane, Boulder, certainly deserve the Sage and Snow Garden of Beauty Award. Their beautifully landscaped yard, two greenhouses, and expansive vegetable gardens are unusual for busy folks. Cassie built the first greenhouse from old soccer goals and filled it with tomatoes and summer squash. The second is built with cattle panels and is filled with sweet potatoes, cucumbers, herbs, and spicy peppers. The greenhouses and outdoor gardens are irrigated with an elaborate drip system. Cassie grows potatoes, peas, kale, spinach, lettuce, beets, carrots, onions, rutabagas, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus in the outdoor gardens. Since daughter Emily is the brew master for the Wind River Brew Pub, Cassie is attempting to grow some exotic hops for Emily to use in brewing beer. Cassie and Tom’s gardening projects are a great example of re-purposing materials to create something new and useful.

TO A WILD CANARY (posted 8/15/19)
Sublette County Artists’ Guild
The Sublette County Artists’ Guild, originally called the Writer's Club, was organized in 1928 by six ranch women in Sublette County, Wyoming, who had a common desire for self-expression and good company. The only requirement was that each member must present something original at each meeting. The women reached their meetings at homes and ranches in the area by slow travel on very poor roads, necessitating a long tradition of convening only in the summer. Some members created original drawings and paintings, while others wrote poetry, short stories, histories, and reminiscences, producing a trove of imaginative work and first-hand accounts of early Sublette County life. This latest presentation is by Marie Meyer. See the link below for more contributions.

TO A WILD CANARY
By Marie Meyer

One morning when my heart felt sore
I rose to a daily grind
And coming to my kitchen door,
I looked to see what I could find
To strengthen me and keep me sweet
Until my work I could complete.
Upon my listening ears there burst
A song of melody so sweet
My heart stood still
Then fast and faster did beat.
High in a willow-bush I spied
A wild canary so endeared
To me that sweet song
My heart could not be sore for long;
And turning to my work once more
The daily grind had ceased to be
A grind for me.

Andrea Lewis is the new Curator at the Museum of the Mountain Man.

New Curator at Museum of the Mountain Man (posted 8/12/19)
Andrea Lewis has deep family roots in Pinedale
Sublette County Historical Society
The Sublette County Historical Society (SCHS) and Museum of the Mountain Man (MMM) are excited to announce our new curator, Andrea Lewis. She was selected after a nationwide search including 32 applicants from 19 states.

Starting at our busiest time of the year, Andrea has not hesitated to jump in and is already a critical part of the team. We are lucky to have her expertise and look forward to many new ideas she will bring to the organization.

She comes to us from the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum in West Branch, Iowa where she worked with collections for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Andrea previously worked as a museum technician with the National Park Service at Grant-Kohrs National Historic Site in Deer Lodge, Montana and the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Park in Macon, Georgia. She has also worked for military museums for the Department of the Navy and has been a volunteer working with collections in Yellowstone National Park.

Born and raised in Laramie, Wyoming, Andrea spent many vacations in Sublette County backpacking, hiking, fishing, and camping with her family. She is the granddaughter of Maurice Faler, and great granddaughter of local pioneers, Vincent & Lillian Faler.
Andrea is a graduate of the University of Wyoming holding a Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Humanities and History with a minor in Museum Studies concentrating on Historic Preservation. She also holds an Associates of Arts in music from Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri. Andrea is an Army veteran.

The mission of SCHS/MMM is to preserve and interpret the history of Sublette County and the Rocky Mountain fur trade. Interpretation is the most visible to the public through exhibits, programs and publications. However, preservation is the behind-the-scenes work that makes interpretation possible.

More than 20,000 artifacts in the permanent collection have to be documented, handled, stored and cared for according to the highest standards, ethics, and museum best practices to preserve our heritage for future generations.

With such a large collection, a full-time professional curator is vital and would not be possible without the support of Sublette County, Sublette County Museum Board and community support.

MESA Annual Horse Show (posted 8/9/19)
MESA Therapeutic Horsemanship hosted their Annual Horse Show on Friday, August 2nd at the Sublette County Fairgrounds in Big Piney. The event started with MESA riders performing drill team exercises to the songs from the movie, The Greatest Showman.

Special guest speaker was Garrett Bazany who suffered a spinal cord injury at age fifteen from a trampoline accident that paralyzed him from the chest down and caused him to lose some function of his arms. Despite being diagnosed a quadriplegic, he recovered full use of his arms, most of the sensation in his legs, and the ability to walk short distances with a walker.

Semper Smoking and the MESA Board of Directors hosted a fantastic dinner after the show. Over 130 people attended the event.
