November Share the Plate
Sunday November 15th
The Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne opened its doors in November 1997 when a group of concerned citizens saw the need for a place to mentor youth here. Since then, the Club has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The after school and summer programs offer arts, character and leadership, education and career focus, health and life skills, and sports, fitness, and recreation.

Christmas Stockings for Homeless Children and Youth
This year our church community outreach holiday project will be to make and fill stockings for the homeless children and youth of Cheyenne. According to our local school district, there have been between 250 and 300 school children with no fixed address enrolled during the past 2 years, and of those between 40 and 60 are considered “unaccompanied,” meaning they do not have a parent or guardian present in their daily lives. We have been in communication with Denise Kittelson, student support liaison for schools, and she is most appreciative of our project idea. So here it is, you kind and generous people!
Each Sunday before and/or after service (with the exception of November 22), we will have tables set up in the Social Hall with all the materials needed to decorate about 60 stockings. We hope the children AND parents and other adults will each decorate one stocking – some for boys and some for girls, young ones and teens. Directions will be on the tables. Then comes the FUN part! We need to fill them with small gifts. Here are some suggestions:
Hats Gloves/mittens Socks Underwear Food (snack bars, fruit snacks) Hair Brushes Hair ties for girls
Personal care items (shampoo, lotion, lip balm, deodorant, toothpaste & brushes, etc)
Small toys for younger ones Small gift cards ($10-15) from King Soopers
And of course items that you all think might be fun!
Please place your donations in the food collection bin in the church lobby or give to Sandi Gaulke (630-5856 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
We will also accept cash donations to purchase the above items.
Edith Cook invites you to celebrate her new home by attending her Open House, Saturday, Nov. 14, from 2 to 5 PM, a non-alcoholic event. No housewarming gifts, please.
From I-25, take Exit 65 (“Slater”). Turn left, traverse the overpass. You’ll dead-end into a paved road, “Richeau Road.” Turn left, note her house to the south. Travel about a mile until you come to a green gate. If the cows are off in the distance, the gate will be open. Turn into the driveway with the dog-mangled woodpiles.
Her new address is 83 Richeau Road, Wheatland, WY 82201; email: email@example.com
Many agencies in the Cheyenne community are asking for warm winter clothing for their clients. Family Promise, our local program for homeless families, is especially in need of children’s coats.
Please place your gently used, clean winter clothing of any type in the bin in the church lobby. We will make sure it gets to those who need it most. Thank you!
Bring One ~ Feed One
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
UUCC FOOD DONATION BIN is located in the lobby. Can you contribute ONE non-perishable food item per month?
As the winter months descend upon our community, we will return to collecting non-perishable food for Cheyenne’s food pantries. If each person can bring just ONE food item per month, together we can make a big difference. This month, we would like to support the Wyoming Coalition for the Homeless. They are in great need of breakfast items – breakfast bars and cookies and instant oatmeal as well as soups for lunch. They also welcome warm clothes for the women who come to the shelter.
One request from the pantries: please donate food in original, unopened, dated packaging.
Let’s make a difference for hungry folks who are homeless in Cheyenne.

Please take a few minutes and complete this online survey below regarding Cheyenne’s Tourism Business. As you may be aware, the tourism industry employs more than 3,000 Laramie County residents, making it the County’s third largest employer, behind F.E. Warren Air Force Base and the State of Wyoming.

Dear Cheyenne Tourism and Business Leader,
Visit Cheyenne is working with InterVISTAS Consulting, an international tourism consulting firm, to conduct a comprehensive survey to better understand Cheyenne’s tourism strengths and opportunities for future growth.
Visit Cheyenne is the official destination marketing organization for Laramie County and has been dedicated to attracting leisure and convention visitors for more than 25 years. We are governed by a Joint Powers Board and are funded by the County lodging tax approved by voters every four years.
The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. As a dedicated stakeholder in the local community, your feedback is valuable to this effort, even if you are not directly involved in tourism.
As you may be aware, the tourism industry employs more than 3,000 Laramie County residents, making it the County’s third largest employer, behind F.E. Warren Air Force Base and the State of Wyoming. Visitors spent $377 million in Laramie County in 2014, ranking us 2nd behind only Teton County. The local tourism industry has wide-ranging impacts to the entire county.
Please complete the survey by Friday, November 13. If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to contact Jordan Young at Jordan.Young@Intervistas.com.
