For the last few years the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has been hosting a live auction during the Pardners N’ Prosperity Luncheon, with this year’s event being presented by RE/MAX Capitol Properties.
The event has been designed to celebrate the agriculture industry in Laramie County and the community’s strong ties to the industry’s history. During the event guests were educated by an array of agricultural professionals, including a special story by Stacia Berry about their centennial ranch. In her presentation she discussed that she doesn’t have a formal title for the ranch business because various duties call throughout the day.
Using the presentation as an example she express that in the moment she was serving as the Chief Communications Officers and later she would be Director of Fence Fixing. With this in mind, it is important to keep this level of work ethic and ability in our workforce for years to come. Having examples like these in the community shared with the local FFA & 4H Chapters and various student organizations in attendance at the events helps to foster interest for future agriculture professionals.
The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce if always focused on developing a healthy economy for generations to come. Funds raised from a live auction at the event the Chamber has successfully raised nearly $2,500 towards building a strong youth agriculture program in our county. This is the start of a long-standing tradition for the local community and an important one for the future of the agriculture industry.
