When I wear a mask, I want you to know the following:
📷 I'm educated to know that I could be asymptomatic & still give you the virus.
📷 I don't "live in fear" of virus; I want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
📷 I don't feel the "government controls me". I feel I'm an adult contributing to the security in our society and I want to teach others the same.
📷 Wearing a mask doesn't make me weak, scared, stupid or even "controlled". It makes me responsible & shows I care.
St Josephs Food Pantry has free face masks. When u ck-in at Pantry, ask the volunteer for 1-3.

JO-ED PRODUCE has been a strong supporter of St Joseph's Food Pantry & they stepped it up even more by letting us store frozen pallets of meat & refrigerate produce boxes in the summer months. This allowed the Pantry to serve as the distribution site to 15 feeding programs to receive free Farmers Family Programs' pallets/boxes of meat & produce. At the beginning of Covid-19, Jo-eds was an important resource for affordable disposable gloves too. They were also an important resource for bulk buying since Covid-19 caused Sam's Club & Walmart to limit bulk purchasing of affordable bulk produce, meat, and food items. The Jo-ed staff is great to work with especially the owners Rocky & Pete. They continue to be a blessing to the Pantry and the community. Jo-eds Produce is located at 309 W 9th St., (307) 634-5885.

St Joseph’s Food Pantry clients have been enjoying the wonderful fresh produce received through an anonymous contributor who purchased from Miller Farm at a discount price. Our community angels, Knights of Columbus Joe Prutney & other members volunteered their time to pick up the produce & delivered 5 truckloads to the Pantry for the last two weeks.
On August 15th, Cheyenne Kiwanis members helped distribute food boxes from the WY Food Bank of the Rockies mobile unit that was held at the Laramie County Community College.

Subject: Board of Trustees seeks public comment
The LCSD1 Board of Trustees is seeking public comment on a proposal to change membership of the board from seven members elected and serving at large to a combination of four at-large trustees and three representatives elected by three defined Areas of the district. At the end of the comment period, the Board will decide if the resolution should be amended, adopted or rejected.
Read the resolution on the LCSD1 Website (laramie1.org), under “News and Events.”
The public may submit comment by Sept. 15, 2020:
Complete a brief online survey by clicking on the following link:
https://fs10.formsite.com/laramie1/hszhgqmcnp/index.html The link is also available under the “News and Events” tab on the district website.
Send email to the superintendent’s office at [email protected]laramie1.org, [email protected], & Board chair [email protected].
The proposed Residence Areas must have about the same number of people, to comply with Wyoming statutes and the U.S. Constitution, as counted in the latest Census. Areas will be election districts and will include precincts as defined by the Wyoming Legislature next year, when 2020 Census numbers are reported. If this governance structure is approved, Area lines would be redrawn after every 10-year Census to ensure equal population. The U.S. Constitution guarantees equal rep (“one-person-one-vote”). The statute that applies W.S. 21-3-111 (b) and (c).
LCSD1 divides its 26 elementary and seven secondary schools into three “triads,” with about equal numbers of students in each. The newly drawn Areas would approximate the triads, but we should expect some deviation to assure equal total population. That is, an Area may be larger or smaller than a triad to meet requirements of the Constitution and statutes.
Thank you. Renee Gamino

As June 19 approaches, here’s what you need to know about the holiday.
What is Juneteenth?
On June 19, 1865, Gen. Gordon Granger arrived with Union soldiers in Galveston, Texas, and announced to enslaved Africans Americans that the Civil War had ended and they were free — more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
At the time Lincoln issued the proclamation, there were minimal Union troops in Texas to enforce it, according to Juneteenth.com. But with the surrender of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee two months earlier and the arrival of Granger’s troops, the Union forces were now strong enough to enforce the proclamation.
The holiday, which gets its named from the combination of June and Nineteenth, is also known as Emancipation Day, Juneteenth Independence Day and Black Independence Day.
“Juneteenth has always been particularly special for African Americans,” said Julian Hayter, a historian and an associate professor at the University of Richmond in Virginia. “It’s this critical inflection point in the Black freedom struggle.”
