January 28, 2006
Sue Lambert and I are on our way to Sheridan, Wyoming for the big Town of the Year celebration today. We get a parade and everything. Here’s the news release:

SHERIDAN—Sheridan has been voted as True West Magazine's first-ever #1 Western Town in America. A celebration will be held from 1:45 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Historic Sheridan Inn.

“Dozens of Western towns applied or were nominated for the award. The judges noted that Sheridan has several historic districts and dozens of historic sites - and hosts numerous Western events each year. The town raised $1 million for a new history museum, scheduled to open in 2006. And renovation work continues on the historic Sheridan Inn, where Buffalo Bill Cody auditioned acts for his Wild West show in the 1890s.”

This Just In From Penny In Sheridan “I know you on the way and I am looking forward to your arrival this morning at the Wingate, and then meeting you by 1:30 at City Hall, 55 East Grinnell Plaza, for our horse drawn carriage ride to the Inn! Please let me know if I need to prepare for anything else—besides getting REALLY EXCITED!!!"
—Penny L. Becker, Executive Director, Sheridan Travel and Tourism, Sheridan, Wyoming
